WORLD WATER DAY: Interlinking Water with Green, and Healthy Food System.

WORLD WATER DAY: Interlinking Water with Green, and Healthy Food System.






Water is key to Food Security. Crops and livestock need water to grow. Agriculture requires large quantities of water for irrigation and of good quality of various production processes.






Roughly  30%  of the food produced worldwide – about      1.3 billion  tons  -  is  lost or wasted every  year,  which means   that   the water used  to produce  it   is  also wasted.


3.4 million  people, mostly  children , die annually  from  water related diseases. Most  of   these illnesses and deaths can be prevented through simple, inexpensive measures.


Producing 1 kgs of rice, nearly requires 3500 litres of water




Please do not loss the Food .......
