  • Soil moisture monitoring

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Soil moisture monitoring is critical for managing water resources in an efficient manner. This applies to both irrigated and rainfed cropping systems. Water is increasingly becoming the most limiting resource needed to meet the food and fiber needs of a growing and more affluent population. Soil moisture monitoring can e.g. be used as a tool to assist irrigation scheduling. Irrigation management gives better crops, using fewer inputs, which increases profitability. Soil moisture sensors help with irrigation decisions.

  • Mekorot water resources management

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Mekorot implements state-of the-art technological solutions and cutting-edge processes that succeeded in maximizing the utilization of Israel’s water resources. The systems include a national network of fully-automated control centres. These centres ensure the continuous functioning of Mekorot’s 3000 water installations including wells pumping stations treatment facilities reservoirs and pipelines.

  • Wastewater irrigation of Salix Plantations - Hedemora Energy

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The largest and northern most full-scale system for wastewater irrigation of Salix plantations in Sweden.
    The local community in Hedemora has long experience in producing biofuel from Salix plantations. The cooperation between Hedemora Energi AB and local farmers has resulted in irrigation of 75 acres of Salix Plantations. The local farmers in the project are guaranteed to sell their biofuel to the local municipal heating plant. As a result the project is contributing to the local production and consumption.

  • Targeting AgWater Management Interventions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    This is a new tool developed for helping assess the scope of new water technologies in better and lasting water management in the Volta and Limpopo river basins in West Africa. Called TAGMI (Targeting AGwater Management Interventions), the new tool is meant to explicitly help assess the likelihood that any new water management technology will still be in use two years after its introduction.

  • World Water and Climate Atlas

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The IWMI World Water and Climate Atlas gives irrigation and agricultural planners rapid access to accurate data on climate and moisture availability for agriculture. The Atlas includes monthly and annual summaries for precipitation, temperature, humidity, hours of sunshine, evaporation estimates, wind speed, total number of days with and without rainfall, days without frost and Penman-Montieth reference evapotranspiration rates.

  • Bhungroo – small women farmers owning and developing an innovative rainwater saving technology

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Description of the project: Erratic rain and irrigation scarcity contribute to food insecurity, financial losses and indebtedness  for small farmers in India, especially in coastal areas. Bhungroo®,  a locally developed rainwater management technology, saves farmers’ crops from waterlogging during monsoons and ensures adequate irrigation during dry seasons. The project relies on  trained rural Women Climate Leaders (WCLs), who promote the technology and deliver fee-based agriculture expert advice.

  • Assessing and Managing Scarce Tropical Mountain Water Resources

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    The present article documents increasing water abstraction and the difficulties in establishing limits for low flows such as the Q80 value (flow available on 80% of the days per year). The article also presents the role of water users" associations in mitigating water conflicts related to over-abstraction. Water users" associations are also involved in activities such as environmental education, awareness creation, improved irrigation practices, afforestation, and water regulation.
