Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water availability and quality are keys to achieving food security and human health, which are essential to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In many countries worldwide, water quality is threatened by pollution due to industrial and agricultural activities. Furthermore, water scarcity places significant pressure on the allocation of water for different sectors that are important for the nation's development. Consequently, efficient use of agricultural water, including recycling and reuse through innovative safe and economical treatment methods, can contribute significantly to alleviating and reducing the competition of scarce resources, thus promoting the achievement of three of the key SDGs: food security; reducing poverty; and water and sanitation for all. This Special Issue aims to collate genuine and original innovative methods for the treatment of contaminated waters and reuse in the agriculture sector. Original research articles and reviews are welcomed.
