Princess Sirindhorn of Thailand has called for more action to manage the threat of water scarcity.

Princess Sirindhorn is an FAO Special Goodwill Ambassador for the Asia-Pacific. She made her call to action during the Asia-Pacific World Food Day Observances at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation headquarters in Bangkok.

She said, “Today, nearly 2.5 billion people live in water-stressed countries. Competition over this priceless resource makes the problem more salient as freshwater becomes less available. Yet it is critical to producing more for our region’s growing population.”

She added, “This is a call to action. We must not leave anyone behind. We must begin to better manage and share our water wisely. We must produce more food with less water. And we must make sure that water is distributed equally so that food security is ensured for everyone.”
