Environmental Impacts of Food Production

'Food, energy and water: this is what the United Nations refers to as the ‘nexus’ of sustainable development.
As the world’s population has expanded and gotten richer, the demand for all three has seen a rapid increase. Not only has demand for all three increased, but they are also strongly interlinked: food production requires water and energy; water power can be used as a source of energy; agriculture provides a potential energy source.'
