EIT Food South

Deadline: 29/03/2020

Water plays a central role in how societies mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. A holistic approach considering water, the biosphere, and the anthroposphere is required to provide sustainable agricultural and economic systems that will allow us to decelerate climate change, protect us from extreme events and adapt to the unavoidable at the same time.

Main problems to tackle:

  • mitigating water scarcity and drought situations,
  • reducing the over usage of water,
  • wasting less water with the existing resources

In order to have a wide representation of knowledge, we are inviting representatives from different sectors, including policy, industry, civil society and research and innovation to participate in the process of creating this task force to support in the knowledge sharing and through innovation across the South of Europe.
