Opportunities to increase water productivity in agriculture with special reference to Africa and South Asia
2009 (English)Report (Other academic)
Our primary goal in this paper is to describe how improvements in water and land management can increase the productivity of water in agriculture, which, broadly defined, means getting more value or benefit from the volume of water used to produce crops, fish, forests and livestock (Kijne et al., 2003). We begin by reviewing water scarcity and water productivity at the global level. We then describe ten Key Messages regarding efforts to improve water productivity in agriculture, with emphasis on Africa and South Asia.
