Agriculture is the sector with the largest demand for water, and also one of the worst hit in the recent drought events of 2018 and 2019. Relevant impacts for the sector include loss of crop yields and harvested production; increased costs for water supply and irrigation; and heightened potential for tensions, disputes and even conflict with competing users. The sector’s flagship policy, the CAP, is undergoing a reform process that includes among its aims a readjustment of its focus to incorporate better water management into farm practices. Under the Rural Development Regulation, also known as Pillar II of the CAP, a set of measures including training and farm modernisation to promote water efficiency are concrete elements widening the scope of the agricultural practice to include environmental protection and improvement.
