Saving Water is an international project aimed to raise awareness of water consumption in agriculture.


Project: 2020-1-CZ01-KA204-078269

Saving Water is an international project aimed to raise awareness of water consumption in agriculture and to find the best methods or technologies to improve efficiency in these sectors:

  • Saving water in livestock (Portugal)

  • Saving and keeping water in nature (Czech Republic)

  • Saving water in crop production (Bulgaria)

  • Using plant and animal residues and waste as an alternative source of energy (Spain)

Check the reports on EPALE (Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe) in different languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, Bulgarian and Czech.

The topic of the project arose from the long-term global problem of water protection due to global warming.

During two years, experts from the partner countries of Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Portugal and Spain exchanged experiences of the good practise in the field of agriculture, namely in the topics of saving water in the field of crop and livestock production, water retention in the landscape and the last topic was the use of plant and animal remains and waste as an alternative source of energy.  

The Czech Republic has a well-established plan and projects for retaining water in the landscape, which will eliminate poor water management in the 90s. In its research program, Bulgaria has set plans for the development of non-traditional drought-loving crops such as sugar sorghum, and also monitors yields depending on the amount of water in sunflower, corn or noble new varieties of vegetables. The northern part of Portugal does not have problems with a lack of water, but with its retention in the landscape, where a lot of water flows into rivers during periods of torrential rains.


In animal production, they try to use natural resources as much as possible for watering farm animals, and farmers try to circulate water on their farm and make the most of it. A visited region of Spain, Asturias struggle with the management of national parks and a high increase in the number of wolves. For the maximum use of agricultural biological waste, they use historically proven procedures based on, for example, mixing sawdust into composts for better water retention and thus the decomposition of biological substances usable for fertilizing.


Exchange of experience and mutual education is always beneficial for agricultural practice. A total of 16 active experts  of the various organizations with different agricultural specializations, who went throug weekly internships in order to develop their professional knowledge and competences, were involved and supported in the project.
