Addressing Drought and Water Scarcity: Solutions for Safeguarding the Global Food System in the 21st Century

Agriculture is feeling the brunt of prolonged droughts at home and abroad. While California, Colorado, and Texas are having one of the worst droughts on record, numerous other countries are also dealing with water shortages, including Brazil, northern India, northern China, south and central Australia, and every European nation around the Black Sea.

Please join us to discuss the latest impacts of the California drought and the broader implications of a world facing water scarcity.
