The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has selected the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute (DWFI) at the University of Nebraska to lead its new Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Irrigation and Mechanization Systems (ILIMS).
In this episode of the Water for Food Podcast, we hear from Nicole Lefore, the director of the new lab and the associate director of sustainable agriculture water management at DWFI, who shares the purpose of USAID’s overall Feed the Future initiative – how ILIMS will support smallholder farmers in low- and middle-income countries and how the lab can ultimately reduce global hunger, poverty and undernutrition and help increase food and water security.
