In honor of this year’s World Water Week and World Water Day themes of Water and Food Security, it’ll be fun to see some Public Service Announcements conveying a similar message. It was actually a bit difficult to find them on this topic. The first PSA was posted on AlertNet not long ago. In a simple way, it details the surprisingly high amounts of water required to produce different types of food. An H20 Food page on this blog that covered similar things is archived here.
And if you still don’t quite see how water and food security are connected, the next PSA will help you understand. It was created by the International Food Policy Research Institute, and it details how the water, energy, and food sectors affect each other. It’s a really good intro video – please share.
