This panel will discuss the growing threat of water shortages and floods to food systems and the parallel need to better integrate water and food system management from governance to financing to community level planning. The panel is composed of scientists, Indigenous knowledge holders, farmers, and representatives from development and private organisations. Panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities for more integrated water and food systems and examine the financial and governance barriers and opportunities for achieving a more systems-based approach. The event will also focus on the role of collaboration across diverse stakeholder groups and the actors and actions needed to deliver more integrated water and food systems that work for both people and nature.
