Relationship between water, energy and food

SDG 6 SDG 7 SDG 12

In a rapidly changing world essential resources are the key to survival. We need water to get energy and energy to get food and vice versa. They are all interconnected and loosing one poses severe consequences.

With climate change and the rapidly growing population we need to achieve more with less. What do I mean by this; more food needs to be produced in order to adequately feed the population that means more energy to produce and transport thus more water used.

With 1 in 3 people not having access to clean water and factors such as desertification due to climate change intensifying that, water scarcity is a major problem which in turn makes for achieving more with less.

To create sustainable frameworks and innovative policies is the key to maintaining the nexus between food, water and energy.
