Synopsis

Questions whether there will be enough fresh water to grow sufficient food to feed and to provide enough to drink for the world's rising population. Although there has been progress in feeding growing populations over the last thirty years, largely as a result of expanding irrigated areas, nearly 830 million people still remain undernourished and the rapid growth in food production over the last few decades has begun to slow down.
