Monsanto does not and cannot work alone when it comes to water issues. The world faces major challenges with respect to clean water, water quality and access to water, and the solutions do not reside in a single approach or single entity. We have partnered with several non-governmental organizations to address local water and food issues.

  • Mississippi River Basin Initiative: Nutrient and sediment runoff are major environmental concerns, but steps have been made to manage runoff better thanks to improvements, which are supported by Monsanto financial support to local groups.
  • Water Efficient Maize for Africa: In Africa, Monsanto is working with governmental agencies, foundations and aid groups to provide the opportunity for food security for resource-poor farmers in Africa.
