Climate Conversations S1E11: Climate, Food Security and Water: Interdisciplinary Insights

Content Tabs


This week, the climate conversations team are joined by Élodie Blanc and Erwan Monier, research scientists in the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, who are investigating the way climate change affects the amount of water available for agriculture.

We discuss how climate modelling and collaborative research are used to assess the way climate influences regional agriculture, the economy and industry.

Erwan and Élodie also stress the importance of bringing different disciplines together within universities to solve complex problems such as climate change.
