Virtual Conference // Cracking the Nut 2021: Building Resilient Food, Water, and Energy Systems
This learning event will highlight how systems can be designed, adapted, and reinforced to ensure regular access to food, water, and energy for rural populations in developing countries, and how public and private sector initiatives can work at the nexus of food, water, and energy to stimulate rural and agricultural development. This topic is particularly important given the negative impacts of the COVID pandemic and climate change in countries with growing populations and food insecurity. By focusing on how to make systems more resilient, this event will convene leading experts in rural development, sustainable agriculture, water sanitation, clean energy, finance, and investment, including representatives from the private sector, governments, donors, and development implementers.
November 15-18, 2021
