This event will explore case studies from the private sector on using nature-based solutions and regenerative agriculture to improve water resiliency in their operations and value chain footprints.
On average, agriculture accounts for 70 percent of global freshwater withdrawals (FAO, 2017) and agricultural production also impacts the quality of freshwater supplies. That’s why private sector actors who influence agriculture have the power to improve the resiliency of water supplies. This event will explore case studies involving the private sector that have used nature-based solutions and regenerative agriculture to improve water resiliency in their operations and value chain footprints. The Nature Conservancy will provide an overview of global water and agriculture challenges and opportunities. Participants will then hear case studies from companies and other stakeholders who have used these strategies in their initiatives around the world. The session will then close with a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities related to improving water resilience through regenerative agriculture and nature-based solutions.
