One Water,
One Health:

Water, Food and Public Health
in a Changing World

June 7th-9th, 2021

Water, Food and Public Health
in a Changing World

Currently, the whole world has been focussed on public health with the COVID-19 pandemic, which has also disrupted farming, production, and shipping, highlighting the fragilities of the interconnected systems we all depend upon.  Water is a critical factor in both agriculture and food processing, as well as in nutrition and broader human health issues. This complex nexus of sectors is often treated in silos, from both science and policy perspectives.  Examining the inter-linkages between water, food and public health is now more critical than ever, especially as the world changes in response to the stressors of pandemics, climate change, population growth, and urbanization.

7-9 June 2021

IWRA’s Online Conference in collaboration with the FAO will address these challenges and priorities. The conference will be held from June 7th to 9th, 2021, and its main goal is to promote the sharing and exchange of the latest scientific and policy knowledge on the links between Water, Food, and Public health for the sustainable governance, use, and management of these resources globally.

This online conference has the overarching theme of “One Water, One Health: Water, Food and Public Health in a Changing World” with five different sub-theme challenges to be addressed, which you can see here.
