Water and Agriculture

Access to water is a key condition for food production and economic development. Water shortages contribute to poverty and starvation and severly constrain industrial development. Yet today, more than 2 billion people are living in areas of the planet affected by severe weather stress and that number is expected to grow to over 4 billion over the next 25 years.
