The Water Productivity Open Access Portal or WaPOR, developed by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) is a tool that uses satellite data to monitor agricultural land- and water productivity throughout Africa and the Near East. The ability to monitor in near real time aims to assist relevant stakeholders in identifying water productivity gaps, proposing solutions to reduce these gaps to contribute to a sustainable increase of agricultural production and thus food security. In addition, the database will contribute to a more sustainable, productive and climate change resilient way of practicing agriculture, with a reduced impact on the environment in general and on fresh water resources.
