The Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute is pleased to invite you to the Water for Food Global Forum! The Forum is a virtual series of events held throughout October that will convene leading international experts, growers and organizations to focus on achieving global water and food security.
While we are anxious to resume our flagship Water for Food Global Conference in person in the future, we are also excited for the opportunity to offer a unique and free experience for our stakeholders. It’s the same great content you have come to expect from the Global Conference, spread over a month and more accessible than ever.
The virtual Forum will provide an opportunity for individuals with diverse areas of expertise and interest to learn about, collaborate and strategize solutions to pressing issues related to water and food, including those exacerbated by the COVID19 pandemic.
Each week, we will focus one of four theme topics, featuring two hours of “live,” interactive sessions each Thursday, 9-11 a.m. CST, and complemented by a variety of on-demand content. All sessions of the Water for Food Global Forum will be presented virtually on the Cvent platform and registrants will have access to all sessions for free.

- Food Systems and Nutrition - October 3-9
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Agricultural and Water Management - October 10-16
