Agricultural Water Summit 2023: Key Meeting for Water Management

Agricultural Water Summit 2023: Key Meeting for Water Management

The event will take place on August 3rd at the Conference Center of the Sun Monticello Hotel, Chile.

Water use in agriculture requires planning, collaboration, and innovation, as the industry accounts for over 70% of global water extraction. However, it also contributes to 40% of the total food production, a significant fact. So, where do major stakeholders gather to analyze water management and seek joint solutions to this challenge?

Since 2021, the Agricultural Water Summit 2023 (AWS) has been the main platform in Chile for analyzing climate scenarios, measuring economic impacts, addressing new irrigation technologies, innovation, and precision, as well as learning from national and international experiences of collaborative projects between industries. In 2022, this event brought together over 650 attendees and 70 industry stands.

The 2023 version comes with even more energy, as the AWS has become “the key point where the fruit and agricultural industries gather to stay informed about advances and developments regarding water-related issues,” says Gustavo Yentzen, CEO of Yentzen Group, the company organizing the event, who further states, “We are very proud to have laid the cornerstone of this much-needed activity for our industry.”

Thus, through a program designed with a multivariable analysis approach, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interesting presentations, panels, success case exhibitions, and hear from sector leaders, where experience and collaboration will be key elements to continue addressing the problem of drought and ensuring water security for 2050. The event will contribute with innovative solutions and cutting-edge technology that is already being used in other parts of the world for water management, preservation, and reuse in agriculture.

“It is one of the main events related to water issues at the national level, where all water users can learn about the needs due to climate change and political changes, which are essential for adapting to new conditions and the new reality that the country faces,” comments Felipe Martín, an expert in public and business policies, former Executive Secretary of the National Irrigation Commission (Chile), advisor to the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation, and coordinator of the Water Group of the IICA Southern Agricultural Council. He will also present on the Challenges for Agriculture and Water in Chile.
