Molden: Intimate link between food, water

Global food production has outpaced population growth since 1960, but meeting growing demand for food and water in the future will be challenging.

"There is an intimate link between food and water," said David Molden, deputy director general for research at the International Water Management Institute and an internationally known expert on water management. In his public lecture, "Will there be Enough Water to Grow Enough Food?" Aug. 27 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Molden said the answer to this critical question is "no, unless we change the way we think and act on water issues."
