Abstract

"Irrigation with polluted water or wastewater is a widespread reality, especially in low-income countries where it is popularly used for vegetable cultivation. Yet many policymakers are unaware of the significance of the practice and the benefits it can bring. Nor do they know that practical recommendations are now available to make wastewater use safer and more sustainable without relying on non-affordable treatment technologies alone."
