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 UNL to transform our collective expertise into collaborations that enhance the resilience of Nebraska’s agricultural working lands and beyond.
Hosted by the Center for Resilience in Agricultural Working Landscapes (CRAWL), 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.
Hosted by the Center for Resilience in Agricultural Working Landscapes Nebraska Innovation Campus (NIC) – Banquet Hall (2nd floor) on Nov. 17 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Attendees are encouraged to join CRAWL for networking sessions before and/or after the event. A free lunch will be provided with registration from noon to 1 p.m. at the NIC Banquet Hall. Beverages will be available for purchase at the reception from 5-6 p.m. at the Mill on Innovation Campus.
