Best way to resolve Luddite Riots

I was playing the Greece mod (from Xietanu) with all DLC from Steam enabled and two of the most common problems are nearly impossible to resolve.

The first one is the Luddite Riots. I know I need to reduce Poor Earnings and increase Education to resolve. Education has one of the biggest delays from the game (like Technology, 6 turns average), and Poor Earnings is a complex set of aspects, policies and problems. I made a game with 5 terms and the problem left unchanged during almost the entire time.

The second one is the Water Shortage. I raised Environment to the maximum and tried to implement Climate Change Adaption Fund (astonishingly expensive) and the effects were minimal.

Is there a way to mitigate these problems without spending rivers of money or turns?
