The world faces unprecedented food shortages as global demand for nutrition is set to double by 2050. Canada is one of very few countries that can expand its agricultural exports in a significant way. This presents our nation with a major economic opportunity and a significant responsibility. To capitalize on this opportunity and help feed the world, we must invest in our agri-food sector in an intentional, responsible and effective way, recognizing fresh water as an essential input in agricultural production. Without water, there are no crops, no livestock, and no agri-food industry. 

This report highlights Canada's opportunities to increase food and agriculture production while ensuring our water resources are sustainably managed with the help of virtual water and water footprinting tools.
