Food and Water – Basic Challenges to International Stability
Please Find Resources and Presentations from this Event:
Our goal throughout the five meetings is to foster international partnerships leading to coordinated global strategies to increase the availability of food and water. These will require coordination of national policies and private sector initiatives to support the global objectives identified by conference participants, recognizing our global interdependence and the need to solve problems together.
Food and water, humanity’s most basic needs, are in short supply, pressured by population growth, economic trends, trade rivalries, political strategies and unfavorable weather developments. These have reduced supplies relative to growing global demand driven, in part, by our global success in raising real incomes. It is not possible for individual countries to deal effectively with these problems. Solutions require global coordination and cooperation, planning and strategies.
Our International Conference Series, in keeping with our mission of the expansion of global dialogue and the betterment of worldwide living standards, endeavors to bring together parties affected by issues of food and water security to identify the causes of these problems and developing global strategies to ameliorate them.
