Georgina Bingham, Research Associate Professor, Department of Entomology, UNL & Faculty Fellow, Daugherty Water for Food Institute, presents “Climate-smart Agriculture: Engaging One Health, Insects, Food and Water Security.” Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase. In relation to entomology, this poses threats in the form of expansion of suitable habitats for many economically damaging insect pests’ species, particularly insects with vectoral capacity. This presentation will describe examples where the appearance and increase in abundance of these insects pose a threat to the US and global economy, agriculture, public and animal health.
