This article presents the design of a control strategy for the Calais canal, a navigation canal located in a lowland area in northern France that is affected by tides. Moreover, the available actuators are discrete-valued and the hierarchy of operational objectives is time-varying. All these circumstances render water level regulation of the...

Faecal contamination across the lettuce value chain was assessed in Maputo, Mozambique. Escherichia coli was used as an indicator of faecal contamination, with concentrations ranging from 3.4 to 5.7 log units/100 ml in groundwater, river water and partially treated wastewater. Municipal tap water used to wash lettuce heads in the markets had...

Linpan is a unique traditional rural landscape, mainly found on the plains of western Sichuan, China. It is known for its traditional agricultural practices, characterized by a harmonious coexistence between people and nature. The traditional architecture, festivals, lifestyles and the interdependence between human and nature can definitely be...

The importance of small reservoirs for the livelihoods of people in the Upper East Region of Ghana cannot be over-emphasized. They are used for many purposes which include fishing, livestock watering, construction, irrigation, recreation, drinking water, and other domestic uses. The reservoirs were built most often close to communities to...

As a result of ongoing climate change, urban environments are put under increasing pressure from extreme weather events. Insufficient research is being done into the modeling of urban drought resilience. Most urban drought resilience and water network optimization models are designed for city-scale demand with regional water supply networks and...

Water scarcity is a persistent global issue that requires effective solutions. One increasingly popular approach to address the distribution of freshwater in different regions is the utilization of Water Irrigation Systems (WIS). Due to their vital role in ensuring people's well-being, it is crucial to design a reliable infrastructure that can...

Waterlogging is the accumulation of excess water in the rootzone. When soils are waterlogged the rootzone is either saturated or submerged with water. As a result, waterlogging prevents aeration of the rootzone which has adverse effects on crop growth. Waterlogging is an issue in both irrigated and rain-fed agriculture and crop productivity...

Fresh water is an essential resource for life. Yet, overexploitation of water resources, rainfall shortages, and a decrease in water quality by pollution increase water scarcity worldwide. Since agricultural production consumes about 70% of the available fresh water resources, it is particularly vulnerable for water scarcity. Therefore, this...

We propose a model-predictive control (MPC)-based approach to solve a human-in-the-loop control problem for a network system lacking sensors and actuators to allow for a fully automatic operation. The humans in the loop are, therefore, essential; they travel between the network nodes to provide the remote controller with measurements and to...

Agriculture is considered one of the primary elements for socioeconomic stability in most parts of Sudan. Consequently, the irrigation water should be properly managed to achieve sustainable crop yield and soil fertility. This research aims to predict the irrigation indices of sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), sodium percentage (Na%), permeability...

In Zimbabwe, farmer-led irrigation is far more widespread than planners and policy makers realise. Along the Shashani sand river, in the arid to semi-arid lands of south-western Zimbabwe, diverse farmer-initiated irrigation ventures exist. This qualitative case study focuses on bucket irrigation, in which very small vegetable fields of up to...

Early Southern Mesopotamia shows a complex history of expansion of (irrigated) farming in relation to urban developments and changing landscapes. As a first step to study expanding irrigated farming system, an irrigation-related agent-based model was developed to explore farm(land)s and irrigation systems in relation to decision-making...

Farmer-led irrigation is valued for its resilience and ability to cope with shocks and benefit from opportunities. Yet, typologies of farmer-led irrigation are mostly static categorisations without analysing farmers’ decision-making over time, and without studying ‘failed’ cases. We therefore analysed temporal changes in farmers’ irrigation...

There is an urgent need in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to enhance irrigation access to meet the challenges of growing population and climate risk. To achieve this, big investments are currently planned in large irrigation infrastructure. We believe there is danger in following this conventional approach, which requires big lumpsum investments,...

The intensity and frequency of hydro-meteorological hazards have increased due to fast-growing urbanisation activities and climate change. Hybrid approaches that combine grey infrastructure and Nature-Based Solutions (NBSs) have been applied as an adaptive and resilient strategy to cope with climate change uncertainties and incorporate other...

Smallholder farmers (SFs) are cornerstone actors in eradicating poverty and hunger. Companies have recently focused on SFs as potential customers and suppliers. Several hindrances yet prevent SFs to be commercially viable actors. In this respect, sustainable business models (SBMs) bring opportunities for companies to increase profit, improve...

Agricultural aquifer storage recovery and transfer (ASTR) stores excess fresh water for later reuse in irrigation. Moreover, water quality improves because chemical pollutants and pathogens will be removed by degradation and attachment to the aquifer material. The source water may contain the bacterial plant pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum...

Since industrialization, world population is constantly on the rise, and so the demand for nutritious and healthy food is increasing as well. Traditional agriculture is steadily extended with and substituted by crop growing in greenhouses, which has better yield, more resistance against weather extremes, and overall more control over the growing...

As a response to the dry summer of 2018, Witteveen+Bos developed a model for water demand prediction to improve insight into water demands. Validation by water board "Hunze en Aas" has revealed the predictive power of the irrigation model to be very limited. For this thesis project, we developed a methodology for the detection of irrigation of...
