Sharing knowledge on the use and conservation of water for food production

Ideas and Updates

On this page we will be posting articles and documents which will show how our ideas on RWH&C are developing as the Amanzi for Food project develops.  We will be producing a series of ‘Think Pieces’ which we hope you will find interesting and stimulating.  We will also be reporting on some of the project’s key activities and developments.

We are very keen to have comments, suggestions, fresh ideas and updates on RWH&C from our partners in the project and visitors to the website. Please send through anything you think may be of interest to us via the contact page.
