The UN World Water Day 2012, celebrated on 22 March 2012, focuses on water and food security, it deals with the change of diet to reduce water footprint. Nearly 7 billion people feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drink two to four litre of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat, producing one kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litre of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litre.
