Resource Security: Food, Water & Energy
A GHI Strategic Focus Area
Food. Water. Energy. Adequate and sustainable resources are critical to global health. And so UW–Madison works across boundaries to introduce and grow healthy, sustainable food–from cranberries to meal worms. Ensure access to drinkable water. Develop clean, sustainable and affordable energy.
This is the concept of One Health in action—contributing to a safer and more equitable world for all. Encouraging us to understand the close connections between our well-being and the health of the world around us.
Global health calls for interdisciplinary collaboration: teaching, learning, turning research into action. With colleagues and communities across the world, UW–Madison researchers are developing microgrids for rural communities. Putting waste to work. Exploring the potential of potatoes, corn and dairy. Working together, we address the determinants of health and disease, respect Indigenous and local wisdom, share knowledge. And find solutions.
