The National Groundwater Association has announced that Peter G. McCornick, PhD, PE, D. WRE will give the keynote at NGWA’s Groundwater Week and the Irrigation Association’s 2016 Irrigation Show and Education Conference and is titled, Water for Food Security: Solutions for the Context. “Food and water security are two major interrelated challenges facing the world. Producing enough food for a growing, urbanizing, and wealthier human population requires increasing the use of water and land, placing more pressure on already degraded ecosystems, especially if we do not manage the use of these resources well,” said McCornick. EARTH Magazine recently looked at food security in their 2016 article, "How to Feed 11 Billion People."
