Regional Process INR.2.1.AM

Water and food security in a changing world: regional perspectives / Successfully addressing the challenges of food security with available water resources in the Americas vastly diverse regions while contributing expertise and technology to others.

· Coordinator :
Daugherty Water for Food Institute (DWFI)

The America’s covers a vast geographic expanse ranging from the Arctic to Cape Horn. Accordingly, agriculture within the America’s varies greatly from region to region. For the 7th World Water Forum, the America’s Regional Process was divided into several sub-regions to address Theme 2.1 Water for Food. These sub-regions include North America (U.S. and Canada), Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, and South America (sub-divided into Brazil and the Andean Countries).
Since approximately 70% of the world’s water withdrawals are used for agriculture, a significant increase in food production will be required in the next 30 years to meet the needs of the global population. Achieving this will necessitate improvements along the entire supply chain ? from the field to the fork. Farmers will need to be engaged to play a role in water stewardship.
This inter-regional session will address the water for food theme covering topics including irrigation technology, use of big data, seed technology, yield gaps, aquifer management, and other timely topics. The role of civil society and the regulatory environment in water management for agriculture will be addressed.
