Access to clean water for all is one of the greatest challenges and a goal of the United Nations for sustainable development in the future. The role of agriculture in water management is a multidimensional issue and has to be approached holistically. Agriculture is considered to be the largest “consumer” of water, since approximately 70% of water reserves is used for irrigation.
Responsible and sustainable water management is and will remain a key challenge for the future. Everybody’s goal should be to ensure that the relevant needs are covered with the “tools” available, without endangering future generations and their ability to meet their own needs.
In the special issue of the EPI GIS magazine, Piraeus Bank seeks to draw attention to all current issues related to water management in Greece’s Agriculture. In this issue, experts, academics, researchers and specialists on the various aspects of the subject present their views and share their knowledge.
