I considered that the theme of the paper “Water and food in the twenty-first century” was central to helping humanity and protecting our planet in the new millennium.
The findings of this paper show that almost a billion people on planet Earth do not receive sufficient food to be in good health, and that to solve this crisis twice as much water will be needed for food production in the year 2100 as in 2000. In the face of climate change, this water will have to be stored in underground aquifers, where it does not evaporate.
Many new hydrological projects will be required so that the poorest people on Earth may enjoy the living standards of the more fortunate.
The predictions of large-scale hydrological models under climate change conditions are being analysed.
The Springer Nature campaign highlighted current global environmental problems and brought them to the forefront of public attention.
