This area has been strongly influenced by the heavily populated Eskişehir settlement which is significant both from the viewpoints of agri¬cultural activity and industrial complexes. In coming years, economic significance of the Eskişehir area is anticipated to increase as the share of agriculture and industrial investments rise in the country. The sensitivity to erosion by water of extensive agricultural areas and the expected strong droughts as well as the heavy urbanization and the dependence of agriculture on increasingly polluted surface and groundwater irrigation in places necessitate an integrated approach that overlaps with the purpose of the DESIRE initiative, in order to provide a sustainable development in the region.
