Water Use Efficiency



The key goal of improving water efficiency and productivity is to improve farmer incomes without worsening environmental conditions further. A particular need is to mitigate the impacts of drought and likely over allocation of water, especially groundwater.

This activity will develop the concepts and build understanding of water productivity, water use efficiency, crop and agricultural productivity and their practical application to water resources management at a range of scales from river basin to farm. It will also pilot remote sensing of water consumption, WUE and water productivity at river basin scales in order to make assessments of WUE and WUP as well as to support river basin planning and management.

The activity has been active in introducing international practices for irrigation system modernisation and automation. It is training WRD staff in the use the FAO MASSCOTE system for planning the modernisation of irrigation systems.
