July 01, 2020: Socioeconomic Water Productivity

 

Description

Water productivity can be defined in various ways: in biophysical water productivity (yield per unit of water consumed, kg/m3), economic water productivity (financial returns per unit of water consumed, $/m3) and social objectives (stability, equity, employment, food security, etc.). Each definition reveals another piece of the puzzle, but all of them are needed to provide a complete view of water productivity.

This masterclass webinar from WaterPIP is aimed at introducing different definitions of water productivity and how each definition inform a complex debate. After the completion of this webinar, you will acquire a holistic understanding of the interconnections and trade-offs between different types of water productivities. You will also become familiar with a framework on how to assess different policy strategies related to water productivity.
