The Benelux Business Council has the pleasure to invite you on behalf of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for the ADSW Web Series on food and water security on 26 November at 2 PM.
"Agriculture is the largest consumer of the world's freshwater resources, and more than one-quarter of the energy used globally is expended on food production and supply." (UN Water).
Driven by climate change, a rising global population, rapid urbanization, changing diets and economic growth, water and food security is vital for nations to ensure all citizens and residents have access to sufficient, safe food and water sources at all times, including in emergencies and crises like the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Join us for the 2nd ADSW Web Series with Her Excellency Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, Minister of Infrastructure and Water, The Netherlands and Her Excellency Mariam Almheiri, Minister of State for Food and Water Security, UAE, as we explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted water and food security as critical priorities, and how we can harness technology and innovation to tackle challenges in the sector.
