World Water Week is being observed from 1 to 6 September, to highlight the importance of this resource which is critical for food production.

Despite progress that is being made in increasing crop yields, challenges such as water scarcity and increasing salinity of land due to climate change can hamper further growth in agricultural productivity.

The IAEA's Steve Thachet filed this report from Vienna.
