Food and Water

Making water use and distribution ecologically sustainable, making food accessible, safe and sustainable

This section features initiatives towards producing and making accessible safe and nutritious food, sustaining the diversity of Indian cuisine, and promoting slow food. Along with this, it carries stories on making water use and distribution ecologically sustainable and equitable, achieving decentralised conservation, retaining water as part of the commons, and democratic governance of water and wetlands.

We would like to avoid featuring purely elitist food fads even if they pertain to healthy or organic food, and expensive technological water solutions that have no relevance for the majority of people.
