dc.description.abstract "Asia is the world's most populous continent, containing 60% of the world’s people. Africa comes second, with 12% of the world’s inhabitants. As the world's population rises from 6.8 to more than 9 billion by 2050, both these continents will face increasing demands for food and water. During the Green Revolution of the 1960s, irrigation helped India stave off famine and reduce rural poverty. Today, irrigation is stagnating. It is declining across Asia and is not widespread in Africa." en_US
