In the context of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021, the Global Programme Water's Network RésEAU, part of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), launched the No Blue - No Green​ Campaign on 27th September. The awareness-raising initiative emphasizes the strong links between water, food and the environment from a local to global level. We all know: without water, there is no food!

 

The No Blue - No Green Campaign aims to

 

  • support and enrich the ongoing UN Food Systems dialogues from a water perspective,

  • foster nexus understanding, and

  • showcase achievements and success stories of key partners.​

Partners of the RésEAU have been invited to join the journey and to share interesting facts and figures, their achievements and success stories​ related to water and food. 

 

The received key water and food facts and figures from all over the world, including Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, etc., make up the campaign.

 

 

The success stories featured range from 13-year-old Fatiya in Ethiopia, who became a hygiene champion as well as a gardener in a Blue School (Caritas Switzerland); to more general key facts, e.g. that worldwide 1 billion plus people provide water for themselves, often by private wells. Examples of a hamburger, which needs almost 2500 litres of water to be produced (Water Footprint) further, demonstrate the strong interconnectedness between water and food.

 

The No Blue - No Green C​ampaign​ presents these and many more genuine, surprising, meaningful, innovative key facts and corresponding visuals.
