Sustainable Water Management

More and more water is required to fulfill the needs of food, feed, fiber, and energy through agriculture for increasing population. Its availability to agriculture is declining day by day. Also, over exploitation, improper use and mismanagement have led to deterioration of quantity and quality of water as well as environment. It is causing many problems to the society and responsible to loss of man, money and quality nature. This issue could be addressed with proper understanding of the problem and posing the best solution and planning through sustainable management to prevent irrigation water crises for present and future generations.


Sustainability is the capacity to endure. Sustainability interfaces with economics through the social and ecological consequences of economic activity. It is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions. Sustainability was one of eight goals in Millennium Development Goals agreed at the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000.
