Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Along with the population growth and general aspiration to direct the alimentation to healthy dietary habits, there is a visible need for improving both the production and quality of food. Temperature rise and global shifts in rainfall patterns due to climate variation are bringing new climate conditions to all regions and posing several challenges for agriculture. The processes in agriculture production are highly sensitive to climate variability and climate changes and on the other hand, they also contribute to these changes. Food loss and waste, sustainable agriculture, and nutritional challenge are the measures that indicate the sustainability of food systems. Areas suitable to agriculture are already widely cultivated in almost all continents. New ecologically friendly cultural practices and innovation systems are already adopted in many countries for coping with risks and opportunities associated with climate variability and climate change. They are based on the assessment of the uncertainties around the climate drivers variation and their potential effect on both natural resources and food production demands. This Special Issue in the Water journal aims to show the progress addressing new technologies and strategies responding to the climate variability impacts on crop productivity, resource quality, and adaptation measures in the agricultural sector.
