Lacking a silver bullet solution, he leads a four-country collaboration called Securing Water for Food. SWFF, pronounced swiff, is a $35 million partnership among the US Government agency called USAID, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the Government of South Africa and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. SWFF makes grants to social entrepreneurs around the world working to help farmers grow more food using less water, to enhance water storage or to improve the use of saline water to produce food.
