Improving the Use of Fresh Water Resources on Farms

Fresh water scarcity is a severe problem in many countries and regions around the world; and due to climate change and a rising global population, the problem is growing. Given that 70% of the world’s freshwater resources are currently used in agriculture, it is crucial that we improve water management at the farm level. In order to tackle the issue, Coop, a Swiss retail company and pioneer in sustainability, joined forces with GLOBALG.A.P. to develop an add-on for sustainable water management at the farm level.
