As World Water Week opened in Stockholm Monday,  the head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization said global security starts with ensuring access to water.


FAO General Director Jose Graziano Da Silva told participants in the annual event:

“There is no food security without water security. With crop growing hampered by the effects of pollution and climate change, agriculture must become more efficient and fairer.”

He was speaking to the theme of this year’s conference, which is water and food security.

Swedish Development Cooperation Minister Gunilla Carlsson also spoke as the conference opened, urging the business world to find fresh ideas and new partners to improve food security.
