Chicago Council Fellow Explores Tensions, Linkages Between Food, Water SDGs

Chicago Council on Global Affairs: Uncharted Waters: Are the Sustainable Development Goals for Water and Food Working Against One Another?
As part of a new Chicago Council blog series titled “Uncharted Waters,” Michael Tiboris, fellow for global water at the Chicago Council, explores the challenges of food security and water scarcity and discusses whether the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for food and water are working against one another. Tiboris writes, “This is a critical moment for global food security and water security. Even if there are inherent tensions in food and water SDGs … they also have important synergies. Failure to investigate these interlinkages and mutually exploit them risks a world which is both hungrier and thirstier” (2/26).
