Increasing Agricultural Production Using Water Productivity
9:00–10:00 a.m. CET / 4:00–5:00 p.m. Manila
Water is by far the greatest water consumer in Asia, with agriculture accounting for between 60% and 95% of all water diversions in various countries. Over the past two years, the ADB Water Sector Group, IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (IHE Delft), and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) have been investigating and testing how agricultural water productivity studies, which combine field and remote sensing data, can provide decision support information to guide investments and irrigation management. Such decision support is becoming increasingly important for leaders and water managers who are tasked with sustainably managing water resources, increasing water productivity, and improving food security.
During the webinar, IHE Delft and IWMI shared the outcomes of their water productivity measurement work. They introduced 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 can impact decision-making.
