Lincoln, Neb. —Supply chain disruptions, rising input costs and extreme weather events are reshaping how society interacts with a global food system.

Advancements in cropping technology and shipping logistics have made American commodities accessible the world over, but innovative research approaches are detecting widespread ecosystem change — raising important questions about the future viability of these landscapes to produce food, water and energy.

In collaboration with the Celebration of Innovation, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the 50th anniversary of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, the Innovative Approaches for Enhancing Agricultural Resilience stakeholder forum will bring together researchers and staff from across the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to transform collective expertise into collaborations that enhance the resilience of Nebraska’s agricultural working lands and beyond. The forum will be Nov. 17, 1-5 p.m., at Nebraska Innovation Campus, banquet hall (second floor).

Hosted by the Center for Resilience in Agricultural Working Landscapes, the half-day event features presentations and discussions exploring how the “resilience approach” has permeated the water, food and energy nexus, and how to operationalize resilience today to adapt to the production uncertainties of the future. This is a free event, but registration is required.

Attendees are encouraged to join CRAWL for networking sessions before and/or after the event.
