The World is Thirsty

… because we are hungry.

I care about sustainable food, access for the hungry and a viable future  for us all. I must, then, also care about water.

This year’s theme for World Water Day is: ” The World Is Thirsty Because We Are Hungry “.

  • It takes 10x the amount of water for the production of a 1 kg of beef, vs. a 1 kg of wheat.
  • By 2025, 2/3rds of the population could live in water stressed areas.
  • 90% of our total water consumption goes to the production of food.

 

 

Do you care? Then take action!

From field to fork, you have the power of change.
