Tossing out food like a running tap


Wednesday, 1 Jan 2003

A visiting international water expert believes "Tossing out food is just like keeping the tap running". Dr Charlotte de Fraiture, from the International Water Management Institute in Sri Lanka, will speak on Water for Fuel and Food in a Changing World at a public seminar to be hosted next week by Charles Sturt University’s (CSU) Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS). Dr de Fraiture, who was a keynote speaker at the 11th International Riversymposium held recently in Brisbane, Queensland, will speak at the School of Environmental Sciences on the University’s Thurgoona site. Dr de Fraiture has worked on such diverse water issues as catchment development, measuring irrigation performance, and modelling global water supply and demand. The seminar, starting at 3pm on Monday 8 September, will be followed by afternoon tea and an opportunity to speak with Dr de Fraiture.
