Topic Working Groups are communities of practice that address specific, well-defined challenges in relation to water and food that are cutting across basins. They aim to facilitate cross-basin learning and research, and help build capacity of basin teams through sharing of experiences and mentoring. The selection of topics is an evolving process of identifying key emerging issues of global importance, and responds to the needs of CPWF research at any moment or stage.
Current Topic Working Groups:
- Resilience in Water and Food Systems
- Spatial Analysis and Modelling
- Learning to Innovate (L2i)
- Global Drivers of Change
These topics can be adapted, completed or complemented, as other communities of practice emerge that are pertinent to specific basins. Each community of practice may include scientists, practitioners, managers and policy-makers within and outside the CPWF. Ensuring effective communication, internally and to external actors, and sharing of information and knowledge will be integral to the success of the TWGs.
