Sustainable agriculture is a core part of the concept of sustainable development. Given the forecast in population increase, sustainable agriculture has to achieve food security in combination with economic viability, social responsibility and have as little effect on biodiversity and natural ecosystems as possible. This concept requires a thorough understanding of agroecosystem functions. The protection of soil and water is one necessary prerequisite as well as the efficient use of mineral and organic fertilizers. This might be achieved by means of improved technology and better understanding of the basic processes in soils. In the context of sustainable agriculture, also water quality and water availability are important issues, where technology and organization of irrigation posing major challenges for the future. there is no general answer to the question to which extent natural resources may be used or even consumed and to which extent the conservation of natural resources is obligatory. Within the manifold definitions of sustainable development indicated there is consensus that sustainable development implies the intergenerational transfer of natural capital.

The finite and fragile water resources of India are depleting while demands are growing rapidly in line with urbanization, population growth, and industrial development. Even in this situation, water continues to be used inefficiently in all sectors. The current institutional arrangements are no-longer adequate for sustainable water management. The current approach in the water sector emphasizes development of water resources and infrastructure under a top-down, supply-oriented and fragmentary framework. Fundamental reforms are required in the sphere of water development, allocation, delivery and management. The National Water Policy of India and state level policies considerably reflects the reform requirements in the level of water institutions. It is argued that, privatization of the water sector would enhance efficiency and sustainability in spite of it’s drawbacks which would affect poor communities in the society. The disadvantages of privatization could be controlled by private sector participation in the management and service delivery of water by the public sector.

But 1.1 billion people in developing countries today have inadequate access to water. While competition for water increases worldwide, agriculture - the major user of water - is challenged to manage water in a more efficient and environmentally sustainable way. Meanwhile, the governance of the global agri-food system is undergoing significant changes, thus altering business relationships. These altered business relationships raise questions about the impact of food business on water resources. The central research question of this paper, applied to developing countries, is: Does food business satisfy the interests of Environmental Special-Interest Groups and farmers in efficient and environmentally sustainable agricultural water management, as well as the interests in the related arrangements of relationships? Drawing on stakeholder theory, the relationships between food business, environmental stakeholders, farmers, and water resources are explored. By transferring the key principles of value creation, dialog, and continuous improvement on food business, critical factors were identified. Value creation, inclusiveness, and accountability are c...

The current literature compartmentalizes the complex issue of water and wastewater into its discrete components; technology, planning, policy, construction, economics, etc. Considered from the perspective of sustainability, however, water in the urban environment must be approached as a single resource that can be continuously reused and recycled. This book will be the first to capture all of the current work on this idea in a single, integrated, plan for designing the water-centric cities of the future. From new construction to the retrofitting of existing systems, this book presents the case for a new urban relationship to water, one with a more sustainable connection to the environment and the hydrological cycle. Through case studies of successfully planned and built systems around the world, the book will educate the reader about the need for a new approach to urban water management, and make the case that these changes are not only possible but imperative.

Irrigation is a driver for sustaining food security in northern Nigeria. It provides food, employment,income and means of livelihood.This is essentially due to the scanty rainfall in the region coupled with the periodic droughts experienced. Consequently the then governments established irrigation projects for the efficient use of the scarce water resources.Thus the Kano River irrigation Project was constructed on the Hadejia -Jamaare River in 1976.Since then the project was functional, however, with increase in population, industries,domestic and urban water uses made water resources for agriculture on decline. This spurred use of the project facilities to meet the demand for food production, which in turn calls for more efficient utilization of the available structures, high maintenance and operation cost, however, funding was inadequate by the government which led to poor management ,decline productivity of the project, deterioration of structures etc. To salvage the situation an alternative method for financing it's activities was imperative to guaranty survival.In the light of these,the research advanced cost recovery method as sustainable to farmer,management and Government.
