DAUGHERTY WATER FOR FOOD GLOBAL INSTITUTE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA
The University of Nebraska founded the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute (DWFI) in 2010 to address the global challenge of achieving food security with less stress on water resources through improved water management in agricultural and food systems.
The institute is committed to ensuring a water- and food-secure world while maintaining the use of water for other vital human and environmental needs.
The institute’s approach is to extend the University of Nebraska’s expertise through strong partnerships with other universities and public and private sector organizations. DWFI develops research, education, and engagement programs in a focused effort to increase food security while ensuring the sustainability of water resources and agricultural systems. The institute works locally and internationally, bridging the water and agriculture communities and worlds of small- and large-holder farmers to deliver innovative solutions to this complex global challenge.
