Food, water shortage threat to social peace, Ader tells WSF in Jordan

November 7th, 2017

Shortage of water and food could put social peace in jeopardy, President Janos Ader said at the opening of the World Science Forum meeting near the Dead Sea on Tuesday. The 8th World Science Forum, hosted by Jordan, focuses on food safety, water and energy. Energy supplies are a basic requirement for social peace in the 21st century because the infrastructure cannot be operated without energy, Ader said. Stoppage in energy supplies could bring about a collapse of society and lead to wars, he added, arguing that it is reasonable to ask how science could help with solving the problem.
