Description

“Climate Smart Agriculture in Times of Water Shortage & Water Quality Challenges” - a California-Netherlands Seminar

The current prolonged drought and water quality issues in California highlights a number of interesting challenges related to the water/food/nutrient nexus. There is a need for smart, innovative, and sustainable approaches and solutions at various scales: from plot level to a complete watershed. Optimal management of land and water resources is conditional for a sustainable agricultural production system that has a long-term profitability.

On December 10, 2015 The California Department of Food and Agriculture and the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands signed a Letter of Intent, pledging to cooperate on shared agricultural issues and strengthening the mutually beneficial partnership. This Climate Smart Agriculture Seminar presents the platform to engage the academic, research, governmental, private, and public sector within the Netherlands and California, as stipulated in the LOI.

We look forward to welcoming you!
