The need and function of agriculture must be maintained if we are to safeguard the future of food and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The industry of agriculture needs to become more water-efficient, better at keeping contaminants out of water bodies, and more resilient to climate change. So, how do we go about doing this? The secret is to take immediate action with integrated ways to managing water resources in order to produce more food, fiber, feed, and biofuel with less water and greater sustainability.
Strong political will is required at the highest level if we are to achieve the achievements we need from the UN Water Conference in 2023. Water-using industries need to work together rather than compete.
When combined with creative technological, institutional, governance, and financial assistance, proper planning can stop the degradation of the land and water systems and lessen competition for resources.
