Adaptation is Essential: PepsiCo Contributes to Global Adaptation Institute Conference on Need to Build Resilience
The Annual Meeting & Scientific Convening of the Global Adaptation Institute (GAIN) centered on one theme - the urgent need to adapt to the changing global climate requires pragmatic solutions with the private sector leading the effort.
Dan Bena, Senior Director for Sustainability for PepsiCo, serves as the water subject matter expert at PepsiCo and following his panel at the GAIN meeting, he now equates both water and agriculture at the nexus of the arising global challenges, which also include global health, food security and more. Open dialogue will be important to improve the lives of those most vulnerable.
"The common thread through many of the panels was the idea of interconnectivity," Bena said. "If we are going to be collaborative, and GAIN is the gold standard of a collaborative NGO, we need to break down these [barriers] so that people who are talking about agriculture can talk to the people who are talking about gender empowerment, water resources management, policy - all of those people need to be at the same table."
