DESCRIPTION

[HLP 09]

The overall goal of the initiative is to deliver an outstanding Water for Food High Level Panel for the 2018 World Water Forum in Brasilia, by combining relevant sub-topics for discussion by outstanding and knowledgeable panelists beyond the traditional “water” community.   Some of the elements we envision are:
•        Technologies that support the increase of agricultural productivity
•        Efficient use of water in agriculture and food production
•        Managing water through the food chain: stopping food loss and food waste
•        Conflict resolution among multiple users of water (Urban, Industrial, Ecology, Agriculture)
•        Mining and use of big data, spatial information and in-field sensors for optimizing production
•        Verticalization of production and water use in new agricultural development areas
•        Water storage to improve availability for production
•        Financing of Infrastructure for measuring and managing surface and groundwater

Expected Outcomes: A summarizing document with the key messages presented by the panelists and captured from the responses to moderator and audience questions.
