Groundwater contamination is a major environmental issue, with effects ranging from soil degradation to health risks for humans and animals.
The effects of sewage farming on groundwater are also of concern, as it can lead to water pollution and the spread of disease.
Additionally, the drought can have a significant impact on soil quality, leading to decreased crop yields and soil erosion.
Finally, global warming and glaciers are also linked to environmental and resource economics, as rising temperatures can lead to the melting of glaciers and the disruption of ecosystems.
The state of the groundwater resources ( right column) is determined by forcings such as demographics, land use and land cover change, economics , climate variability and trends, irrigated agriculture, and …
