Abstract: "The world is facing severe and growing challenges in maintaining water quality and meeting the rapidly growing demand for water resources. New sources of water are increasingly expensive to exploit, limiting the potential for expansion of new water supplies. Water used for irrigation, the largest use of water in most developing countries, will likely have to be diverted to meet the needs of urban areas and industry whilst remaining a prime engine of agricultural growth."
