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.
This webinar series is supported by the Water Productivity Improvement in Practice (WaterPIP) project, which is supported by the Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands under the DGIS UNESCO-IHE Programmatic Cooperation (DUPC)
