Irrigated agriculture is the main water user. The specific policy priorities related to the Nexus include sustainable water management, climate change mitigation and renewable energy. Key policy challenges are the major pressures on land and water as a result of urbanization and farming intensification, exploitation of water resources, inadequate consideration of the linkages between water saving technologies and energy use, and policy options to boost economic activity while reducing resource use and promoting sustainability. The following stakeholders are involved: Guadalquivir River Basin Authority, the Water and Environment Agency and several water users associations.
