Practical research stimulates innovation

Land Water Food will contribute to the realization of robust and sustainable food systems. Furthermore it will advise on agriculture and horticulture more resistant to extreme weather conditions. It can draw up sustainable arrangements in areas where water is an organizing principle for its use.

In its approach Land Water Food, in first step utilizes existing local knowledge. This may be essential for finding the most effective measures. Moreover, highlighting the sense of urgency is a must for the optimal support to solutions.

There is no adequate solution without a good foundation. That requires knowledge; sometimes applied science, but more often it is the exchange of good agricultural practices that are common elsewhere. Much has already been explored worldwide. The task now is to unlock all available sources.

Land Water Food will contribute mainly with its global network to unlock and apply existing knowledge. Where possible, it shall promote cooperation between industry, government and research institutions. To Land Water Food the involvement of students, young farmers and practical research are major success factors for structural change.

Composing solutions

Solving complex issues surrounding food production is like composing music. Working as a team of experts can make for a resounding success. This requires skill, a good plan and a clear goal. And natural affinity with farmers and other parties active in rural areas.

There are many factors that determine whether the crop in an agricultural area is successful. The dependence on the whims of the weather, the market and politics make food systems vulnerable. Climate change reinforces this effect. In this complex forum farmers are trying to find a way. Governments set the policy context, promote research and stimulate growth. That is easier said than done. Many plans are little more than pipe dreams. Land Water Food makes climate adaptation concrete and feasible. Soil, water and food systems are connected to an integrated and sustainable approach. Working on operational goals, an action perspective for farmers and other stakeholders. Land Water Food bridges the gap between policy and the agricultural reality. It brings together experts to work with you on an approach with impact! So, why not you?
