Topics: Water and Soil Management in Adaptation to Climate Change
Agriculture is the world's largest water consumer, while at the same time water resources worldwide are under pressure from rapidly growing demands as well as climate change. The intensification of water cycles, as an effect of climate change, creates, in many cases, serious damage to traditional cropping systems due to either water shortage leading to drought and desertification phenomena or due to excess water leading to floods and soil losses. In view of the overall consequences of future climate conditions on agriculture, adaptation measures to mitigate water-related effects and increase water use efficiency should be adopted by farmers.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to increase the scientific knowledge of agricultural water resources management and climate change interactions at a local, regional, and global scale. It is also of high importance to investigate the adaptability of agriculture to the changing climate–water environment based on the advantages of soil and crop management, precision agriculture, and novel modelling/geoinformatics approaches.
Based on this, the proposed Special Issue will provide valuable information to the readership of the Water Journal (MDPI). The topics given below will be considered for inclusion.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
