Abstract

The deterioration and overexploitation of groundwater at the global scale is leading to a dramatic rise of local problems. Private pumping for irrigation purposes has become established in poorly regulated contexts, with agriculture as the main sector responsible for this situation. Wherever agriculture depends primarily on groundwater, the entire agricultural economy is jeopardized. This requires urgent action.
