Managing our water resources: A never ending challenge.
Among all the natural resources water has become the most precious.
(Rachel Carson, 1961. The Silent Spring)

Randolph Barker
Cornell University Professor Emeritus; IRRI Emeritus

In this seminar we will discuss two water management projects in which IRRI was involved and Vietam’s experience in managing the Mekong. We conclude discussing what IRRI is doing in water management (abiotic stresses) and what we might do (training and capacity building) panels to capture novel sources of resistance, and the progress in microbiome research.
