Dr. David Molden, winner of the CGIAR award for “Outstanding Scientist of the Year” and Deputy Director General – Research, at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) says that agriculture is both the cause and solution to many of the world’s water problems. The solutions lie in tapping the unmet potential to grow more food with limited water, and the greatest potential lies within areas of high poverty.
At their annual awards ceremony held this year in Montpellier, France, the CGIAR formally acknowledged Dr. Molden’s exemplary leadership of the Comprehensive Assessment along with the many valuable contributions he has made over the years in water productivity and water accounting research.
