Water Productivity Improvement in Practice

Monitoring Water Productivity using WaPOR – Part 2

Water Productivity Masterclass Series

Date: June 17, 2020

Time: 12:00 - 13:30 CET

Recording of the webinar and presentations are available below

The FAO has developed a portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR). WaPOR offers a way for the public to access reliable, continuous, and near real–time spatial data on water and land use. These data can be used to support agricultural water managers, project leaders, and researchers in conducting evidenced-based evaluations of the performance of irrigation projects.

This masterclass webinar from WaterPIP is aimed at introducing the WaPOR dataset and showcasing how it can be used to measure water productivity and to derive key service delivery performance indicators in irrigation schemes. At the end of the two-part webinar, you will be able to obtain, analyse, and interpret WaPOR data for your own applications.

Topics for Part 2 include:

  • How to download data using WaPOR
  • Detailed assessment of performance and water productivity using tools, such as python
