Daugherty Water for Food launches podcast

Nebraska research hydrologist Joe Szilagyi has shown that precipitation has decreased in the most heavily irrigated regions of Nebraska, a finding that could have worldwide water-conservation implications if substantiated by further research.

Since 2010, the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska has worked toward one goal: a food and water secure world — one in which global food security is ensured without compromising the use of water to meet other essential human and environmental needs.

To amplify the voices of those making waves in this space, the institute has created the Daugherty Water for Food Podcast, available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. New episodes will be available approximately once a month and will feature those contributing to water and food security, both globally and domestically.

In the first episode, award-winning chef, entrepreneur, and agriculture advocate Louise Mabulo discusses youth and sustainable solutions to food security. Mabulo promotes sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table cuisine and was recently awarded as a Young Champion of the Earth by United Nations Environment Programme.

Users can subscribe to the podcast or listen to recent episodes on the podcast webpage.
