More than two-thirds of the global food production is based on rain-fed and flood-based low intensity farming. According to the Comprehensive Assessment, this production system holds the biggest promise to meet the growing demand for food.
In some parts of the world, the last fifteen years have seen major turn-arounds- landscapes and watersheds have been transformed, seeing higher food production and greater environmental protection. These experiences serve as major inspirations to other areas.
The May 18 webinar discusses a number of such innovations in the management of land and water buffers; partcularly the development of a number of new techniques, the scope for new financing mechanisms and the lessons from large turn-around programs.
This would be the first of TheWaterChannel webinars. It has been facilitated by IFAD and the EU FP-7 WAHARA program.
