This book contains most of the papers presented at the Second International Conference on Sustainable Irrigation, Management, Technologies and Policies. The meeting follows the success of the first Conference which was organised in Bologna in 2006.
Over-exploitation of freshwater resources is leading to damaging long-lasting environmental effects with considerable depletion of groundwater and surface water sources. The problem of contamination adds to these effects, effectively reducing the availability of clean water. The Conference also discussed how irrigation ought to be used to avoid deterioration of crops and soils.
The papers presented in this volume have been classified in the following sections: Sustainable Irrigation and Economic Instruments; Irrigation Management; Irrigation Modelling; Irrigation Systems and Planning; Re-use of Water.
