Water is one of the most important issues in the world right now. Access, supply, regulation, law… H20 is central in almost every agricultural conversation. Today on What Doesn’t Kill You, Katy Keiffer is joined by Brooke Barton, senior director of Ceres’ water program, directing the organization’s research and engagement with investors and corporations on the financial risks and opportunities related to water scarcity and quality. Brooke specializes in analyzing how large food and beverage companies are addressing water risks in their operations and agricultural supply chains. She is the author and co-author of numerous reports, including Feeding Ourselves Thirsty: How the Food Sector is Managing Global Water Risks, The Ceres Aqua Gauge: A Framework for 21st Century Water Risk Management, and Water & Climate Risks Facing U.S. Corn Production.. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery
