This World Water Week, Mars, Incorporated are proud to be hosting a session at this year’s SIWI Conference alongside partners Helvetas and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The interactive panel session will focus on the WAPRO (Water Productivity) project – a multi-stakeholder initiative which is now operational in six Asian and African countries and aims to improve food security, water use efficiency and income for over 60,000 cotton and rice farmers. The session will explore what has been learnt so far, outlining its ‘Push-Pull-Policy’ approach as a model for effective collaborative feedback. The session will be hosted by Ian Knight, Global Sustainability Senior Manager for Mars, Incorporated on 28th August at 5pm. You can read more about the session here.
