Abstract

With the lowest per capita arable land base in Africa, and with a rapidly increasing population, sustainability of agriculture in Egypt has now become a critical issue. This paper discusses the critical sustainability issues that need to be considered, and the important policy-related issues in the areas of land and water-resource management that merit urgent attention, if the sustainability of Egyptian agriculture in the 21st century is to be assured.
