Irrigation Water Management in Iran: Growing Need for Action

Only 2.7 percent of global water is available as freshwater with an appropriate quality; out of which, only 30 percent can be applied to answer human and livestock demands according to the University of Birmingham. The global demand for fresh water has been progressively increasing during the past 60 years for many reasons including rapid population, economic growth, urbanization and industrialization, intensive agricultural practices, and environmental degradation. Additionally, the stocks of freshwater resources in some regions, like the arid and semi-arid areas of Iran, have dramatically decreased due to changes in the frequency, duration and intensity of drought events. For example, the 2007-2014 drought in Iran left many internationally renowned wetlands and lakes completely dry,
