Uniter4Water is focused on the water, energy and food nexus, a term that describes the linkage of these three essential items.
Until recently many areas of the world treated fresh water as an inexhaustible resource. It isn’t. The 2015 NASA study identifies 37 major aquifers in the world, and found that water is being extracted from 21 of these at greater than the replacement rate.
The majority of the world’s energy is currently produced by the burning of fossil fuels. It is likely that fossil fuels will continue to be a major contributor to the production of global energy for the foreseeable future.
The production of food sits at the apex of the water-energy-food nexus. It requires both water and energy. Globally, 70% of all fresh water and 30% of all energy are used in agriculture and food processing. A shortage of either has a direct negative effect, reducing the availability of food and increasing its price.
United4Water is founded on the concept that: Achieving a sustainable and sufficient global supply of clean water without damage to the environment and without contributing to the pollution of our atmosphere and oceans is essential for human wellbeing, economic development and preservation of the environment.
