Call For Proposals
The Cracking the Nut® Advisory Committee invites interested persons to submit proposals to present at Cracking the Nut: Building Resilient Food, Water & Energy Systems conference.
For the first time, the Cracking the Nut® Conference will adopt a fully virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 Conference’s primary topic for this year is, “Building Resilient Food, Water & Energy Systems” which is particularly essential today, as the world grapples with a worldwide health and environmental crisis and its impact on vulnerable communities around the world. To improve systems and make them more resilient, we need to mitigate risks, partner collaboratively, and consider the holistic implications of new technologies related to food, water and energy systems and their related support services. This learning event will promote new approaches, innovations and thought leadership that will allow us to find long-term solutions to address growing demands for food, water and energy in developing countries. This conference will facilitate open discussions of the roles of public and private sector, as well as civil society in improving systems, in a way that makes them more resilient, affordable, and adaptable over time. Thus, the conference will bring together development practitioners and relevant stakeholders to discuss innovative ways to support these systems.
This conference’s core themes for the breakout sessions are:
