In the second of our series on the COVID-19 crisis and water, today we share an article written by King’s Water graduate Dr Martin Keulertz, and staff Dr Mark Mulligan and Prof Tony Allan. In their just-published commentary in Water International, they shine light on the links between water and food security.
They point out the pressures on water resources from food security concerns related to the coronavirus crisis. They warn of countries resorting to unilateral measures to address the dual problem of water and food security, weakening international cooperation and giving little regard to the workings of the global food system.
Further details can be found in ‘The impact of COVID-19 on water and food systems: flattening the much bigger curve ahead’.
