Agriculture in a water-challenged world: A geospatial data science approach

Human civilization is currently experiencing an unprecedented water crisis, with 2 billion people facing water shortages in over 40 countries. Since agriculture is the largest freshwater consumer at 70%, global food production needs to move away from subsidizing thirsty crops to a more sustainable food production system. In this talk, I will discuss how geospatial data science can help address some of the pressing challenges of the modern world. I will also discuss why examining the agricultural systems and associated challenges from different ecological settings is important not only for academic understanding but also from policy perspectives.
