​No Blue - No Green: without water - no food

​In the context of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021, the RésEAU will launch the No Blue - No Green Campaign on the 27th September.

This awareness-raising initiative emphasizes the strong links between water, food and the environment at a local to global level. We all know: without water, there is no food! Find out more here.

RésEAU Brief

It is with great pleasure that we present the first edition of the RésEAU Brief series, a medium to share SDC's learnings from water related projects and programmes at the global level. This first edition focuses on the key role water plays in food systems across the globe. This Brief provides you with short glimpses on selected projects and programmes that contribute to su​stainable water and food systems, along with contacts and links for further reading. The projects contribute to boost nature-positive production, build resilience to vulnerabilities, shocks and stress, shift to sustainable consumption patterns, all action tracks in the Food Systems Summit.

​Blue Peace

Blue Peace is a growing global movement and is the heart of SDC's water strategy. It aims to develop a culture of peace and preserve precious freshwater resources, while achieving equitable and sustainable use of water across boundaries, sectors and generations.

As one of its strongest tools, the Blue Peace Index assesses management of shared water resources across five pillars: Policy & legal frameworks, Institutional arrangements & participation, Water management instruments, Infrastructure & financing, and Cooperation.
