Data from Statista’s Global Consumer Survey shows that more than half of the respondents (54 percent) in South Africa considered food and water supply one of the biggest challenges to their country, followed by around 40 percent in Mexico and 33 percent in Brazil. Food and water security is also a worry in Europe, with around one in five people citing it as a serious concern in the UK, France and Spain. Meanwhile, in the U.S., around 27 percent of respondents said that it is a key concern. Like many other countries, this past summer the U.S. experienced widespread droughts.
