On April 24-26, the 2016 Water for Food Global Conference brought together more than 350 participants from around the world to discuss advances in science, technology and policy to help address one of the most urgent challenges of the 21st century: how to achieve greater food security with less pressure on water resources. This year’s theme was “Catalytic Collaborations: Building Public-Private Partnerships for Water and Food Security,” focusing on the powerful impact that can be achieved through public-private partnerships in water for food research, technology and project development.
Thank you to everyone who participated. Together, we are taking the conversation to the next level in regards to leveraging public-private partnerships for improved water and food security.

Conference proceedings will be available on our website later this year. If you were not a registered participant and would like to request a hard copy, please contact Dana Ludvik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
