Agriculture
8. Think about it (1 of 1)








 

   
 

As is the case in most countries, the agriculture sector in your country may be the most important user of water resources. When you think of agricultural water use in your country you may want to consider the contribution of the sector to the livelihood and food security of the population. But you may also ask yourself:
  • Are these water resources used effectively and efficiently or are there alternative means of production?
  • What are the impacts of water use for agricultural production on water availability and quality?
  • How can IWRM improve the performance of the agricultural sector in my country?
  • What institutional arrangements have to be made within agriculture for the implementation of IWRM?
