Water Productivity


Institutions

  • All riparian countries have policies aimed at supporting small-scale farmers to increase their productivity and profits, yet effectiveness of implementation varies considerably;

  • Limited inter-ministerial and departmental collaboration for promoting agricultural water management limits cross-cutting integrated policies to support agricultural water management, hinder best arrangements;

  • LIMCOM’s emergence as an effective RBO significantly enhances the capacity of the basin countries to implement major benefit-sharing programs


Water, agriculture, livelihoods & poverty


Strategic Interventions


Output Management

  • Which stakeholders need which information, when, and in what format?

  • How is that linked to what we are producing.


Major Issues

-Vulnerability of smallholder farmers to water shortages (increased risk of food insecurity)

-Where water productivity is low and can be increased, it should be a priority (depends upon diagnosis)

-Underdeveloped institutional frameworks for nr management at different levels (targeting)
