Irrigation policy in a time of drought and high food prices

This seminar, organised by ICID.UK and the UEA Water Security Research Centre (with support from NERC Water Security Knowledge Exchange Programme and the Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network) will examine global and local irrigation policy in the context of drought and high food prices.
