IWMI in the news
At the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), this message is very close to our hearts. In the Water Risks and Disasters research group that I lead, we apply the latest satellite technology to help national and state governments, non-profits and specialist agencies to plan for and reduce the risk from, disasters.
Our work is primarily focused on reducing risk from climate-related shocks such as droughts, floods and biological pest attacks. These often have a huge impact on the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Africa and Asia, many of whom are poor and vulnerable.
