Sustainability concerns in Asian irrigation



Sustainability concerns in Asian irrigation



Sustainability of irrigated agriculture Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Vimeiro, Portugal, 21-26 March, 1994: 571-580



Definitions of sustainability are reviewed. Irrigation development in Asia is discussed with reference to the area under irrigation and groundwater development. Food demand is discussed with reference to population growth, cereal production and consumption, increasing yields, increasing cropping intensity, and a shift towards high-value crops and diversification. Urban water needs and trends in sustainability are considered.
