Sustainable access to sufficient food and water is essential for sustaining livelihoods. For part of the global population, this access can be ascertained by buying food, sometimes transported over large distances. However, the demands of a growing world population are increasingly hard to meet by finite natural resources. Unsustainable use of resources may result in land degradation or groundwater depletion, climate change and weather impacts can lower water availability and food production, and conflicts may arise between stakeholders on how to share resource access and use. In the case study about Food and Water Security, you will explore these issues in detail.
