Abstract: Some materials concerning the effectiveness of using applied nuclear and radiation physics for solving urgent problems of contemporaneity are presented. The most acute problems of environmental degradation, the reasons for the loss of opportunities in the most productive regions of Ukraine and other countries are discussed. The problems of reducing organic resources for human nutrition on Earth and the current problems of their coexistence are analyzed. The most important international and domestic projects of using radiation for solving such problems are described.

Keywords: water usage, radiation, radiation technologies.
