Fourth Call for Securing Water for Food Innovations

The US Agency for International Development (USAID), Sweden through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (MFA-NL) and the government of South Africa announced a fourth call for groundbreaking innovations under Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development. Launched in 2013, the program aims to increase access to innovations that help farmers produce more food with less water, enhance water storage and improve the use of saline water and soils to produce food. Over the previous three rounds, the program has saved over 700 million liters of water, produced nearly 2,600 tons of food and served more than 780,000 farmers and other customers in more than 25 low-resource countries.
