The World We Want 2015

Get ready for the online consultation on 4 - 11 February 2013

Global amounts of water used to produce food are huge, because all that we eat requires water to grow. With a world population of 7 billion today expected to reach 9 billion in 2050, more food, and therefore more water will be needed. As water becomes scarcier and the demand for other uses (domestic, industry, energy) also increases, we need to find ways to produce more with less, and save water whenever possible.

On 4-11 February, let's talk about water and food. Have your voice heard and tell the world what you have to say!

The Water Thematic Consultation is part of the "global dialogue" comprising around 100 Country Consultations and 11 global Thematic Consultations taking place mainly on-line aimed to bring in voices from a broad range of stakeholders and build a consensus around the place of water in the post-2015 development agenda.

Some questions to think about...
Q#1: When water is scarce, how do you prioritize water for growing food versus growing biofuels?
Q#2: Food waste is water waste. How can we reduce the food waste at home in urban areas, particularly for fresh products?
Q#3: All that you eat requires water to grow, but some food stuffs require even more water. Would you be willing to change your diet to reduce your water footprint?
