Round up of the Third International Forum on Water and Food

Reflections from the Director: telling a story of change and emotion

"One story that resonated with me this week was not about the technical aspects or the models we are testing out. One participant urged us to remember that enabling change deals with people's emotions: their fears and hopes. This is essential to consider when designing solutions that enable change for people."

About CPWF

The Challenge Program on Water and Food was launched in 2002 as one of the reform initiatives of the CGIAR. CPWF aims to increase the resilience of social and ecological systems through better water management for food production (crops, fisheries and livestock). CPWF does this through an innovative research and development approach that brings together a broad range of scientists, development specialists, policy makers and communities, in six river basins, to address the challenges of food security, poverty and water scarcity.
