The Nexus at the
World Water Week in Stockholm 2012

The World Water Week is hosted and organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and takes place in Stockholm. Each year the World Water Week addresses a particular theme to enable a deeper examination of a specific water-related topic. While not all events relate to the overall theme, the workshops driven by the Scientific Programme Committee and many seminars and side events do focus on various aspects of the theme.

The themes change each year, but each fits within a broader “niche” that covers several years. The grouping of themes within a niche is designed to develop a long-term perspective on a broad yet significant water and development issue. It also ensures that each year builds upon the previous years’ outcomes and findings.

The current niche for 2009-2012 is “Responding to Global Changes”, which looks at the potential and necessary responses in water policy, management and development to address pervasive and increasingly impacting global changes. The themes within the current niche are:

  • 2009: Accessing Water for the Common Good
  • 2010: The Water Quality Challenge
  • 2011: Water in an Urbanising World
  • 2012: Water and Food Security

SIWI World Water Week Programme

Increasing imbalances in the world’s water and food security situation are unfolding. The differences between those who have access to plenty of food, ...  for whom water seldom is an issue, and those who are less provided for are obvious. Areas with high population growth face severe problems associated with poverty and low adaptive capacity. In addition, climate change is increasing the unpredictability of rainfall, the rate of evapotranspiration and the occurrence of extreme events. In a situation where the competition for water is getting stiffer, these changes are making food production, including fisheries and aquaculture, riskier and more uncertain. The drama in the landscape is increasing socio-economic and political tensions. During recent years, prices on agricultural and energy inputs have risen and are becoming increasingly volatile, adding a new challenge to farmers and to food security aspirations. The era of low prices is over, affecting producers and consumers in positive as well as negative ways.

World Water Week Stockholm 2012

FAO Programme @ Stockholm 2012

This year, the overarching theme of the World Water Week in Stockholm is Water and Food Security. Feeding the world population in the future with limited ...  water resources means that we have to become better at growing more “crops per drop” as well as revisit our thinking regarding how we produce, consume, and trade food from a water perspective all along the food chain. The Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) is one of the key collaborating partners for the 2012 water and food security theme, along with the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).

Africa: Pumps, Policies and Private Investment

As World Water Week draws to a close, a new report highlights the promise of small-scale irrigation schemes. “Water for Wealth and Food Security” touts ...  simple interventions, such as motor pumps, small reservoirs and rainwater harvesting, as key tools for tackling food insecurity in sub-Saharan Africa. These technologies have the potential to protect millions of farmers by increasing crop yields up to 300 percent in some cases, researchers say. But to reap the benefits of increased water irrigation management, investment priorities will need to change, they say. Small-scale irrigation offers a lucrative opportunity and could provide a billion-dollar boost to household revenues across sub-Saharan Africa, according to the report. Researchers are hopeful that their findings will illuminate the value of small-scale irrigation to private investors. The International Water Management Institute, which aims to improve resource management in the developing world, spearheaded the research. Timothy Olalekan Williams, the organization’s Africa director, spoke with AllAfrica about the report and the potential impact of improved water management. The agricultural economist is confident that small-scale irrigation offers big opportunities.

Building a safe world based on a sustainable water, food and integrity nexus

Our world is facing an urgent food management crisis that is leading to many continuing to go hungry whilst vast amounts of food are being wasted daily. ...  This is why the link between water and food is of immense concern and this year, the World Water Week in Stockholm, organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) was dedicated to this issue. Within the complex nexus of water, food and energy, water plays a critical role and a fair governance mechanism for efficient management of water can lead to long-term positive implications for food security. However, water governance and management are currently suffering from numerous problems that prevent this positive long-term perspective from becoming a reality.

No food without water - Food security despite water scarcity

Agriculture consumes the most water worldwide: the theme of this year’s World Water Week in Stockholm was “Water and Food Security”. Discussions centered ...  on the question of how agricultural production can be increased by 40 to 50 per cent over the next 30 years in order to provide food security for a growing global population - even though there is not more water available. At the conference some 1,500 experts from development policy organisations and from the policy, scientific and civic communities sat together to work on this issue. The laureate of the Stockholm Water Prize, the International Water Management Institute IWMI, put it succinctly by saying “agriculture is thirsty”. Colin Chartres from IWMI underscored that the water requirements in agriculture will double if developments continue at their current pace. Therefore use of the scarce resource water must be optimised and generating additional need should be avoided as far as possible.

Why Water Scarcity Means Food Scarcity

The Chinese middle class is already larger than the entire population of the United States. Africa is not too far behind with a third of its population ...  – nearly 350 million people – having now joined its social middle ranks. This is good news. The leap forward in quality of life for so many millions is something to celebrate. But, we still only have one planet to satisfy the demand of the growing middle classes to buy, drive and eat more. Greater social mobility also means greater demand for water. An increase in national income is linked with a country’s access to a secure and safe water supply. Security of supply and the stability it brings is critical for businesses to flourish. Clean water also brings with it the economic as well as human benefit associated with improved health. And water security is fundamental in the provision of another pillar of economic development: adequate food supply. - by Andy Wales

Nestle, SABMiller See World Water Week as Far From a Washout

The key issues this year: water and food security, followed by partnerships, tools and data. The water-food-energy triangle was key at the 2011 Bonn Nexus Conference, but the key the difference this year, according to an essay penned by David Grant, SABMiller’s senior director of water risk and partnerships, for the Guardian, “was the progression of the issue from a broad theoretical concept to actually seeing practical examples of how it is being both experienced and addressed on the ground.”

Why partnering with NGOs for water stewardship makes business sense

The global water crisis makes collaboration between business, NGOs and civil society essential for securing a sustainable, long term future for all. In ...  Stockholm, 2,500 delegates have gathered for World Water Week to discuss the global water crisis and its effects on food security. Droughts and floods from America to Australia have devastated farms, frustrated civic leaders and caused food prices to skyrocket at a disturbing rate. Now companies are realising that water stewardship is both a moral imperative and makes smart business sense. With the world confronting a 40% gap between the planet’s supply and demand by 2030, the time to confront water scarcity is now.

Farmer-Led Irrigation Schemes Could Transform Food Security in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia

Amid dire warnings, there are rays of hope emanating from around the world. People, not governments, who through ingenuity and hands on experience are creating productive farmland from arid land, fuel this hope. A report by Malik Falkenmark and colleagues at the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) states there will not be enough water available on current croplands to produce food for the projected population of nine billion people in 2050 if current diet trends continue. Amid warnings of water scarcity limiting food production, and as Oxfam and the United Nations prepare for a possible second global food crisis in five years, another report shows that there is water at the bottom of the well.

Water for wealth and food security

The International Water Management Institute, headed by Australian Dr Colin Chartes, was awarded the Stockholm Water Prize at last year’s Stockholm World ...  Water Week. For this year’s event, being held from 26 August, IWMI have released research that finds that smallscale irrigation schemes can protect millions of farmers from food insecurity and climate change in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. As food prices escalate globally due to the failed monsoon season in Asia and the “super drought” in the US, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), a CGIAR consortium research center, released a paper for Stockholm World Water Week titled “Water for wealth and food security: Supporting farmer-driven investments in agricultural water management” that find expanding the use of smallholder water management techniques could increase yields up to 300 percent in some cases, and add tens of billions of US dollars to household revenues across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

Forscher prophezeien Ende der Fleischkultur

Fleisch ist in den reichen Ländern eine billige Alltagsnahrung. Doch damit dürfte laut einer Studie bald Schluss sein: Das Wachstum der Weltbevölkerung ...  und künftige Wasserkrisen könnten das Schnitzel zum Luxusgut machen. Sparsames Spülen hilft da kaum. Denn das weitaus meiste Wasser, das man als Bewohner eines reichen Industrielandes zum Leben braucht, fällt fernab der heimischen Wohnung an - der größte Teil entsteht in der Lebensmittelherstellung. Die Landwirtschaft verbraucht rund doppelt so viel Wasser wie alle anderen Aktivitäten der Menschheit zusammen - und die Fleischproduktion wiederum hat den höchsten Wasserverbrauch. Die Herstellung eines einzigen Kilogramms Schweinefleisch verschlingt rund 10.000 Liter.

Water, Food and Energy: nexus or Lexus? A back-of-envelope analysis

As we sail down the road from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville in air-conditioned luxury, we can stare out of the mirrored windows at mile upon mile of dry rice paddy. It is the dry season, and the landscape is a dark brown, the paddies empty. My driver is a “bong tom”, a “big brother”, with a day job in a Cambodian ministry, a side job in the military, and a sluice of other business activities on the side. He is much wealthier than I am, and the car we’re in is the bong tom trademark, a Lexus GX SUV, with a 4.6 litre, V8 engine, painted in high-gloss black. Inside the car, the air conditioner has pushed the temperature down to a chilly 20 degrees. Outside it, a man in a conical hat walks alongside a pair of buffalo. The blades on the plough they’re pulling scratches at the hard earth. The Lexus is not a nexus. Or so I thought. But in December 2011, when we held our first Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy (W-F-E) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, our hosts stared at the term we were trying to introduce to them. Nexus.

There’s no better time than now for the American public to appreciate the “water-energy-food nexus,” or as I like to call it, the “liquid triangle of ...  life”. To farmers across the U.S., particularly the Midwest, it’s painfully obvious: The historic drought, sweeping across the land like a silent tsunami, is wreaking economic, environmental, and emotional havoc in its wake. It should be a wake-up call for all of us to value water, appreciate the embedded role it plays in our economy, and manage it wisely (saving for a rainy day as well as preparing for rain-less days).
