Water under stress due to food crisis

Good water management of is key.

water crisisWhether it’s bread, meat, milk or fruit, whatever we eat demands water.  The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates that we need to increase agricultural production globally by 70% to feed the projected 9 billion people expected on the planet by 2050.

But, given the current global food crisis, boosting it will certainly increase water stress.  Rainwater harvesting is seen as “non-technological”, unpredictable and vulnerable to climate hazards.  Yet, agriculture depends on rainfall: on average it accounts for 85% of agricultural water usage. So harvesting rainfall is key to boosting crop yields.

Good water management in agriculture should, therefore, not only be about investing in hi-tech drip or pumping systems; it should also consider efficient rainwater harvesting, management, conservation and resourceful use to reduce water stress and increase production.
