On time on target: Our Design Statement
Scarcity of water is increasing in every sphere of our life. In the field of agriculture , water is the most important natural resource, but have the most scarcity. With the ever growing population the demand of food is increasing and so the demand of water. Almost 70% of the total green water is used in agriculture, which is still not enough. On the other hand global warming causes unstable climate. As a result we face serious shortage of water in agriculture all over the world which results in reduced food production, ultimately increasing the food crisis keeping more people deprived of food. In future people will struggle more to get water source and food. Water price will be higher and the problem will get more complicated.
Water scarcity is leading towards to drought in many parts of the world. 80% of the damaged caused by drought is directly attributed to agriculture. Almost 19% crops are destroyed every year for lack of proper irrigation slowing down land productivity by 3.6 times. To feed 9 billion people small investments for supplemental irrigation in combination with improved soil, nutrient and crop management can more than double the food production. A sustainable source of water can tackle the water scarcity issue and proper water management in field can ensure food security by producing more with less water.Therefore feeding more people with the same amount of natural resources.
