Safeguarding the UK's water, energy and food resources
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is investing £4.5 million to safeguard the UK's water, energy and food security. With the world's population due to grow to eight billion by 2030, humanity is facing a crisis with predictions of increasing demand and shortages of water, energy and food. Water and energy are needed to produce food; water is required to produce energy and with the advent of biofuels, energy and food are increasingly competing for land.
