Water and Food

2nd International Forum on Water and Food 2008

The Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) is hosting the Second International Forum on Water and Food, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from November 10—14, 2008. The Forum comes at an exciting time as the CPWF picks up pace and refines itself to best meet Program goals.

One of the major objectives of the Forum is to highlight the new knowledge generated during the first phase of the CPWF by our community of practice.

In addition to Keynotes from high profile scientists and policymakers, the Forum program will include presentations from selected CPWF projects and concurrent sessions on Science and Impact. Attendees can also expect a packed agenda of presentations in parallel sessions on CPWF project results from our nine benchmark basins.

Specific sessions that explore the impact of our research on livelihoods will add some powerful commentary to the severe water and food challenges confronting our world today.
