24 December 2019 – Mumbai, India – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to solving global problems. The new resource is titled “Alternative pathways to food security and nutrition–water predicaments and human behavior”, by Jan Lundquist and Olcay Unver published in the Official Journal of the World Water Council, Volume 20, Issue 5, 1 October 2018.

The paper analyses alternate strategies to deal with global food and water shortage in line with the challenges faced to implement the same. The authors maintain their focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the backdrop of the analysis. Various considerations towards food safety and nutrition have been discussed, chief among them being, the two major imbalances that characterize the food systems in today’s society; malnutrition on the one hand and losses, waste and overeating on the other.

Finally, the authors discuss as to how much food and water does the world actually need and have presented their views on revising the food and water calculation required to support the rising global population. While discussing policies for water governance and sound food habits, the authors state that food systems be oriented that produce “more nutrition and better economic prospects per drop” of water.
