The Centre for Carbon, Water and Food will play a leading role in finding solutions to the global challenge of producing more food, which is of better quality, whilst putting less carbon into the atmosphere and using less water.

The Centre will focus on basic and applied research, especially the long-term research needed to underpin sound policy for management of rural land – both public and private.

The Centre will be focused on developing options that keep people in rural landscapes and that address increasing global needs to produce food and fibre in an ecologically sustainable manner.

More information will become available about the centre. Please check this page for regular updates.

A more detailed website is being developed about the new Centre and will be available soon.
