The need for water productivity

Efficient use of water resources in the agricultural sector is critical for sustainable food production. Agriculture is by far the world’s largest water user and competition between water use sectors is increasing rapidly. At the same time, climate change and extreme weather events are impacting available water resources for food production, and unreliable rainfall and higher temperatures will increase crop water consumption. Agricultural water can be used more efficiently, but only if we know where to look. 

Work Packages

Innovation through application

A truly multi-disciplinary approach. To understand how best to improve water productivity, we need to understand how it translates to on-the-ground change. Through 5 work packages, the WaterPIP Project aims to achieve increased efficiencies in agricultural water use through scientific research, technological developments, policy dialogues, global partnerships, and knowledge exchange.

Tools and Publications

Open-access resources for water productivity

Moving forward, together. Through the WaterPIP work packages, a variety of online tools, academic publications, and practical insights are being developed and will be shared with the water science and management community through open-access platforms.
