    FAO: Adopting green technologies - Solar irrigation systems to prevent water scarcity and reduce carbon emissions in Cox Bazar, Bangladesh

    In Bangladesh, water scarcity threatens agricultural production and the livelihoods of farmers. Inefficient irrigation practices cause huge water losses that deplete underground water reserves. In addition, the excessive use of fossil fuels in running irrigation systems leads to environmental pollution that contributes to climate change and ultimately affects the livelihoods of farmers.
