Cracking the Nut 2021: Building Resilient Food, Water, and Energy Systems
Cracking the Nut 2021 will take place on a state-of-the-art virtual platform over four half days from 15-18 November 2021. This learning event will highlight how systems can be designed, adapted, and reinforced to ensure regular access to food, water and energy for rural populations in developing countries.
The conference will focus on three themes:
- Applying Technology and Digital Solutions.
- Leveraging Private Sector and Multi-Stakeholder Investments.
- Increasing Inclusion of Vulnerable Populations.
Cracking the Nut 2021 will provide a demand‐driven, collaborative learning space where participants share experiences and best practices on innovative approaches to expand food production, manage water resources, and generate clean energy in ways that increase rural incomes and improve equitable access to sustainable sources of food, water and energy. This will include methodologies, strategies, and tools; networks for partnership and coordinated collaboration; and insights into the opportunities and threats impacting food, water, and energy systems today. This multi‐day event will bring together approximately 300 leading experts in rural development, sustainable agriculture, water resource management, clean energy, finance, and investment, including representatives from the private sector, governments, donors, and development implementers.
