Supplemental Irrigation: A Highly Efficient Water‐Use Practice
ICARDA’s Integrated Water and Land Management Program (IWLMP) aims to help improve water and land productivity, farm income and livelihoods in dry areas through research and capacity building. All work is implemented through partnerships with farming communities, national agricultural research systems, advanced research institutes, civil society and others. IWLMP’s mandate covers non-tropical dry areas worldwide, with a special focus on Central and West Asia and North Africa (the CWANA region). The program is structured under five research themes, each with a strong capacity development component: 1. Assessment of water and land resources for agriculture 2. Increasing water and land productivity 3. Combating land degradation 4. Drought and climate change: preparedness, adaptation and mitigation 5. Integration of policies and institutional options.
