Integrated and sustainable management of water resources
With 62.3% of households in the Salfit Governorate with orchard, only 0.3% of agricultural land is irrigated, which alongside a very low productivity and the limited income generated leads to the abandonment of agriculture.
In terms of water, the Region receives the least amount from its basin through springs. The current capacity of the wells is insufficient to cover the demand for water, so the remaining amount is obtained through the exploitation of springs. Most water canalization systems are in poor condition and water resources management is ineffective and insufficient due to archaic irrigation methods causing important losses. Economically, Palestine's main activity is agriculture, and tools for irrigation depend entirely on the resources mentioned.
