Increasing Agricultural Production Using Water Productivity
9:00–10:00 a.m. CET / 4:00–5:00 p.m. Manila
Over the past two years, ADB Water, IHE Delft, and IWMI have been conducting water productivity studies, combining fi eld and remote sensing data, to provide detailed information on how productive irrigated agricultural lands are compared to the amount of water consumed. This information is becoming increasingly important for decision-makers who are tasked with sustainably managing water resources while increasing food security in their region.
In this webinar, IHE Delft and IWMI will share the results of their work. They will introduce the concept and methodology of remote sensing-based water productivity, showcasing the results of three water productivity studies and examples of how water productivity results have impacted decision-making. There will be a Q&A session with the expert panel after the presentations.
