Abstract Share this page

The present paper aims to estimate the areas equipped for irrigation and the desirability of agricultural water management in Europe. For this purpose, all necessary information was gathered from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and cross referenced using the World Bank Group (WBG). Among all presented data in the FAO database, ten indices were selected (based on relevance and the availability of information on all the countries in Europe). The selected indices were analyzed for all 46 countries and the extent of areas equipped for irrigation of cultivated areas was estimated by two different formulas, using the other nine indices. The results demonstrate that value of relative error is less than 20%. In addition, an average index was calculated using two methods to assess each country’s conditions for agricultural water management.
