Feeding Knowledge is a research and innovation programme about food security, linked to the EXPO 2015 scenario. To have a quick overview, explore this video.

 

Topics to be discussed during the webinar:

  • Water plays a main role in food production particularly in the Mediterranean countries where rainfall is less and crop water requirements are higher  
  • There is potential for improving land and water productivity
  • There is potential for increasing the performance of irrigation systems 
  • Climate change will impact the Mediterranean area more heavily than elsewhere but there is potential for adaptation
  • Improving land productivity, water use performance and economic water productivity constitute the main challenges for Mediterranean countries and people to face food security in the coming years  
  • These challenges call for innovative research, economic policies, rising public awareness and democratic governance with users participation 

 

In order to participate, you only need a computer with internet connection, headphones and the attitude to share your ideas on this subject.
