Tomelloso (Ciudad Real), Jan 20 (EFEAGRO).- The Minister of Territorial Policy and Government spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, has assured that the Government is committed to “guaranteeing water in all senses, in all uses, including farming”.
Rodríguez, who visited the Ciudad Real town of Tomelloso this Friday, to questions from journalists, stressed the importance of climate change because “its impact on water, on drought, is a reality”.
In this regard, he stressed that they address this issue from an environmental point of view, “guaranteeing the ecological flows necessary for the maintenance of the flora and fauna of the river environments, but also thinking about the economic sectors affected by water such as the farming”.
A sector, he said, that they support with “special drought decrees or with large investments in infrastructure, as in the Levant, with the seawater desalination plant.”
Rodríguez has also highlighted that the Government is also working in the Segura basin with important investments already planned, “some with General State Budgets and with recovery funds, which are allowing Spain to make large hydrological investments.
