World Food Day Highlights the Vital Role of Water in Agriculture

Today is World Food Day and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is using the event to highlight the importance of water. World Food Day 2023 is being observed under the theme ‘Water is life, water is food. Leave no one behind.” In his World Food Day Address, FAO Director-General Dr. Qu Dongyu spoke on the link between water and the agriculture sector and emphasized the importance of efficient water management in ensuring that the sector can produce food.

Dr. Dongyu stressed that issues such as climate change and water pollution are severely affecting the availability of resources and called on all countries to take concrete actions to improve the situation. World Food Day was established in 1979. The Day commemorates the formation of the FAO in 1945.
