DWFI’s research, policy development and educational programming are advanced through its communication team. The institute communicates program outcomes and impacts with stakeholders in the U.S. and around the world. Audiences include: agricultural producers and water managers; local, state, national and international government delegates; industry leaders, private companies, non-profits and NGOs; faculty, scholars, and undergraduate/graduate students at NU and other educational institutions; and the general public.
The institute’s communication strategy helps build relationships, using the most appropriate media and communication format, to position DWFI as the preeminent U.S.-based resource for sustainable water and food system research, innovation and education. The institute fosters support by engaging stakeholders in two-way information sharing, attracting new advocates and partners through successful conferences, projects and events, as well as sharing updates through email newsletters, website content, social media, news releases and other forms of outreach.
DWFI works to ensure global food security without compromising the use of water to meet other essential human and environmental needs.
The monthly Water for Food Digest e-newsletter is an important communication tool for reaching stakeholders with current news and events related to its work.
The DWFI website continues to be a hub for institute updates and information, especially during the pandemic when many are engaging online.
