This event has passed, however, you can view the recording here: Irrigation and socio-environmental resilience: Finding confluence between strategy and disaster
This will be a virtual event held on August 23, 2021 at 7:00pm CEST (12:00pm CST).
Irrigation offers social resilience amid climate crises and pandemics, stabilizing food production, generating employment and incomes, and improving household water security. Yet, irrigation can also adversely affect ecological resilience, depleting and polluting water, fragmenting habitats, and hastening ecological disaster. Systemic solutions require socio-technological innovation bundles, sustainable financing and continued dialogue and cross-sectoral efforts.
