cial bodies should look more closely at decentralized, small-scale options.
c information on wastewater irrigation has focused mostly on health risks.
Applied research on agricultural aspects of wastewater irrigation is scarce. With
regard to the multitude of factors that influence the search for sustainable waste-
water irrigation systems, there cannot be one solution that
fits all possible contexts.
However, the discipline of agroecology offers a range of approaches and techniques
for designing sustainable wastewater reuse systems. This offers the possibility to
