This brief article relates to global water scarcity; in many countries, such as South Africa, water scarcity is already an everyday issue for millions of people. Water conservation measures such as rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling can help reduce the demand on conventional water supplies. Rain water tanks ensure a degree of water security for homes and businesses.
In a keynote address at London’s annual City Food Lecture, Nestle UK CEO Paul Bulcke warned about the possible consequences of the global water shortage that is expected to strike within our children’s lifetimes.
Bulcke suggested that water scarcity could cut global cereal production by 30% by 2030, saying that water needs globally already exceed current supply, in what he calls the greatest threat to food security in the future.
“It is only by working together with policymakers, civil society, agriculture and other stakeholders at local and international levels that we can develop effective, coherent and concrete action,” Bulcke told attendees. “This is an issue that must be addressed urgently. I am convinced it can be solved. We should give water the right priority, the right value.”
