In recent years, climate change has caused a remarkable instability which is affecting the availability and quality of water in many European regions. The lack and difficulty of managing this matter, not only within the farming sector, is generating tensions between regions and enterprises due to the availability, quality and distribution of water. Considering also the fact that certain products are of notably high water demand and that in certain countries the hydraulic network for agricultural activities is old with many leakages, the gravity of the presented issue is imperative.
The users of the final product will gain extensive knowledge of sustainable water management and be able to adapt useful input from other farmers from all across Europe to find adequate solutions for their specific situations as well as learning how to assist others struggling with the same issues.
Agriculture must be aware of the issue and prepare for its survival and the survival of rural areas. Farmers are not only forced by the circumstances but willing to consider new agricultural management strategies that redefine water management that will best adjust our farms to the conditions provided, while maintaining high quality of products.
It is essential to build knowledge, skills, attitudes and values related to excellent and sustainable water management on farms. The exchange within project work and within entrepreneurial experiences will enrich and speed up necessary developments of the sector within the whole of Europe.
