Water in Rural sanitation & Agriculture

WATER IN RURAL SANITATION AND AGRICULTURE

As the world population is drastically increasing, industrialization and urbanization and therefore environmental pollution is increasing. Eventually, demand for water is increasing and the amount of arable land is decreasing. Water scarcity is becoming a challenge throughout the world in that nearly half of the world population will experience water shortage. The rate of water utilization in the world increases twice at the rate as compared to the increases in the human population. This proves that water is no longer to be considered an infinite source.

Sustainable use of water in agricultural will optimize the skills and use of technology to achieve long-term stability of agricultural enterprise, environmental protection, and consumer safety. Reuse of treated wastewater in agriculture could be achieved by farmers’ participation through management strategies which adopting improvements in irrigation application. Sustainable use of water in agriculture incorporates heathy environment and economic profitability along with providing food needs to the society.

The Food and Agricultural Organization reported that more than half of the water sources were used for irrigation in the world. Industrial and municipal usage of water comes after irrigation. Therefore, water demand could further affect the amount of water utilization in agricultural sectors. This may cause water crisis in and among countries. To deal with this potential water crisis, new water management approaches and strategies are required for all sectors, in particular, the agricultural sector.

Application of new technologies (precision agriculture) help to increase the sustainable usage of water sources in agriculture while enable higher crop production. Excess utilization of fertilizers and pesticides causes contamination of surface water and groundwater sources. Use of salt-rich irrigation waters increases the salinization. Water content and salinity level have a vital effect on both quality and quantity of agricultural crops. Therefore, necessary sustainable steps should be taken to handle all these issues.

This current conference will bring a large number of researchers, students, and professionals together from all over the world to discuss the technological developments and applications on sustainable water use in agriculture and environment. The main topic areas that will be covered in this track are:

  • 1) Sustainable use of water in agriculture
  • 2) Agricultural impact on water quality
  • 3) Control of non-point contaminant sources in agriculture
  • 4) Groundwater contamination through agricultural runoff
  • 5) Effect of fertilizers and pesticides applications on water pollution
  • 6) Impacts on water supply and quality
  • 7) Irrigation demand
  • 8) Water use efficiency
  • 9) Irrigation water reuse
  • 10) Agricultural waste management and disposal
  • 11) Water, food, and energy nexus in reuse
