Gozo talk: Water Footprints - Tackling Water use in Maltese AgricultureCafe Scientifique in Gozo is organising its next talk: Water Footprints – Tackling Water use in Maltese Agriculture.

Cafe Scientifique pointed out that the food we eat makes up 2/3 of our total water footprint. Malta is a water-scarce country and water resources’ quantity and quality are being depleted considerably.

The organisers said that, “the agricultural sector is the major user of this resource, but should it be that way? Can we make more efficient use of water to produce our food? Or should we do without agriculture altogether?

This event will explore these topics to stimulate discussion and help participants better understand the nexus between the use of water resources and the production of food in the Maltese Islands.

The speaker for the evening is Malcolm Borg, leader of the Fowarim project and Deputy Director of the MCAST Centre for Aquatics, Agriculture and Animal Sciences.

The talk will be taking place at the Duke Boutique Hotel in Victoria, on Thursday, the 15th of February, starting at 7:00pm.

Café Scientifique is a forum for conversation about the latest debates and developments in science and technology in a social setting.
