Managing risk for our food system is inherently complex and exacerbated by climate change impacts as well as the need to feed a growing population. A key risk for businesses in the food value chain is water, which needs a robust approach to assessment and response.

This webinar series, jointly organized by Ceres, WBCSD and WRI, will bring together leading food-sector companies, investors and other stakeholders in the food and agriculture sector to explore how companies are managing water-related risks, discuss what investors can do to drive change and highlight new methods and tools available for risk management.
