Irrigation policy in a time of drought and high food prices

This seminar, organised by ICID.UK and the UEA Water Security Research Centre (with support from NERC Water Security Knowledge Exchange Programme and the Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network) will examine global and local irrigation policy in the context of drought and high food prices. The 2012 droughts in the UK, the US and Indo-Gangetic Plain plus current high food prices provide the background to this seminar. The broad question that guides the seminar is “In a time of climate change and food scarcity, can better irrigation policies reduce food vulnerabilities?”

Venue: ICE, One Great George Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3AA.
