Saline Water and Food Systems

The Netherlands has a solid and promising position in the field of salinity, with a focus on saline agriculture, growing of salt-tolerant crops, linkages with irrigation and drainage. The Netherlands is internationally also known for its integral and systems approach in tackling the mitigating and adaptation of salinity issues. The general picture is that better coordination and cooperation between Dutch organisations is needed to keep and strengthen that international position. More importantly, it will further strengthen the Netherlands contribution to tackling salinisation and thus contributing to SDG2 – Zero Hunger.
