IHOPE session on Water Management and Food Security
Researchers from the Integrated History and Future of People on Earth (IHOPE) project will convene a session at the Eight World Archaeological Congress, "an international forum for discussion for anyone who is concerned with the study of the past." The session is titled "IHOPE session on Water Management and Food Security. " It will cover how studies of the past can provide insights about future efforts to secure food and water for expanding populations around the globe, including in rapidly urbanising areas like Sub-Saharan Africa.
IHOPE is a global research project of Future Earth. In their abstract, the session organisers write:
…current theoretical insights will frame examples of past
water harvesting, storage, distribution and use from different
regions in Africa elsewhere and will be interrogated in terms of
material and immaterial potential contributions to meet present day
and future challenges.
The World Archaeological Congress is held every four years. This year's conference will take place in Kyoto, Japan, and will run from August 28 to September 2. Early bird registration is open until April 30.
