Water is critical for agriculture; for plant growth, livestock watering, cleaning, and sanitation. Demand for food is increasing whilst water resources are becoming increasingly stressed as a result of increased demand from other water uses, climate change, and the need to sustain environmental flows. As the largest user of freshwater resources globally, the food production system is increasingly exposed to risks associated with the availability, quality, and costs of water. Resilient water management for agriculture is, therefore, fundamental to food security. This Special Issue will consider how technology, management, sociology, and economics can help agriculture become more resilient to future water-related shocks.
