Werkzeuge für nachhaltige und produktive Wassernutzung in der kleinbäuerlichen Landwirtschaft
A practicable methodology to assess water availability for irrigation is developed in order to avoid overuse of water resources and conflicts. A tool supporting small-scale farmers in optimizing farming operations in terms of income and water productivity is elaborated, verified and disseminated. A simple tool indicating crop irrigation requirement is tested, adapted and promoted. Scientific support is provided to specific studies focusing on the productive use of water.
