Water & Irrigation

Lebanon is facing a water crisis: water is misused in agriculture, centrally-directed water strategies for maintaining efficient irrigation are patchy, and wastewater treatment is underdeveloped with 92% of sewage discharged untreated into the sea. Lebanon has the highest rainfall in the Arab region, and yet a water deficit is predicted within 15 years.

Agriculture consumes over 60% of Lebanon’s water, while large areas of land are not cultivated due to a lack of irrigation. In this context, environmentally-friendly, efficient irrigation systems are urgently needed in order to increase farmers’ incomes while developing food security and preserving water supplies.
