From ground to growth: Can Africa's hidden water resource help secure future agricultural growth and food security

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Twelve months ago a paper on Africa’s water resources made the news headlines. African agriculture, so the story went, sits atop a vast reserve of untapped water that could fuel a Green Revolution, support food security and bolster economic growth, as well as increase resilience to climate change in future decades. This attention to Africa’s ‘hidden’ resource is arguably long overdue, but do such headlines go too far? Can resource availability equate with affordable (and economically rational) access – particularly for smallholder farmers?

Water, food, energy, climate: Smart solutions for 2050

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

The world’s population is exploding at a rate of 80 million a year. With all those mouths to feed we’re going to need a lot more food – and water and energy too. Growing food uses up 70% of the world’s freshwater, which requires pumping to our taps / pumping to where it’s needed, which in turn requires vast amounts of energy, which in turn affects the climate. Water, energy, food, climate: everything is connected.

The climate research community is facing a complex challenge that includes improving current knowledge on the climate system, the interactions among its components and the limits of predictability. The challenge also involves enhancing its ability to interact with other disciplines, particularly decision makers (including those who elaborate policy) and social scientists in order to translate climate knowledge into actionable information.
