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. The main goal of the IWRA 2021 Online Conference was to examine the inter-linkages between water, food and public health which are now more critical than ever, especially as the world changes in response to the stressors of pandemics, climate change, population growth, and urbanization.
