Almeria water woe continues

0

THE Agricultural Association of Young Farmers (ASAJA) has warned that Almeria’s underlying water problems will be far from over in 2018.

Looking back over a year of irrigation issues and drought in the province, the organisation has warned that Almeria needs to fundamentally tackle water shortage issues to protect its agricultural industry.

The group is calling for the creation of a National Water Pact that would demand a commitment from all stakeholders and administrations to take steps to remedy the water deficit situation, including desalination, energy savings and renewable alternatives.

ASAJA has also argued that Almeria’s agricultural companies and political stakeholders must better work together to improve joint planning and crisis management.
