OECD and UN recognize Israel as world leader in water for agriculture

By: Mickey Chesla, Blog Manager

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, just published the “OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2012-2021” Report. According to the report, Agricultural production needs to increase by 60% over the next 40 years to meet rising demand for food. At the same time, there is a growing need to improve the sustainable use of available land, water, marine ecosystems, fish stocks, forests, and biodiversity.

The report notes in particular water management in Israel, saying “A notable feature of Israeli agriculture has been its capacity to increase the efficiency of water use in agriculture. Efficiency has been improved in physical (technical) terms of water use per tonne of output…As a result of these improvements in agricultural water use efficiency, Israel is now a world leader in the management and technologies related to irrigation in arid environments (World Bank).” The report noted that the invention of drip irrigation in Israeli in the 1960’s was the key innovation which stands behind the Country’s success in water efficiency.
