​A new report from the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition takes up the issue of water, noting in its first paragraphs that, "Water is key to human life. It is key to human food security and nutrition." The document is extensive, and includes a diagram exploring conceptual linkages between the three sectors (pg. 27), covers issues around water access and quality for both households and for agricultural use, and ends with a section focused on governance. Sections 1.4 and 1.5 focus most explicitly on trends related to water demands, hygiene, sanitation, and food production.
