Nexus, Water, Food, Climate change

In March I was at the Nexus conference in the US on
Water, Food, Climate change and Energy.

Alarming numbers, and steep curves on all themes!!

The world faces shortages of water and Food and
it is the poor who will suffer most
form climate change

An inspiring p
resentation was of IFAD
The 500 mln small farmers who already produce 70% of all food,
have much potential to drastically increase the food production.
One condition to increase this production is……WATER
Affordable irrigation all year round and new low cost options on
wells, pumps rainwater harvesting can increase access to WATER.

I presented something on Self-supply with a focus on productive uses.
