We have arrived at a crucial moment that calls upon us to incorporate smarter water management strategies into our longer-term planning.
Water is running out in Central Asia. New approaches to water regulation, energy production, and agricultural education are necessary to be able to feed the region.
CGIAR’s new ambitions are defined by a set of impact areas, with water – and therefore water systems science – at the heart of each.
USAID commissioned the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) to examine the impact of USAID-supported WUAs created on sustained increases in resource productivity, food security and equity in southern Tajikistan.
The 'average' farmer in Tajikistan is female, due to high rates of male migration. IWMI's Soumya Balasubramanya makes the case for taking a comprehensive approach towards irrigation by considering the needs of both farms and homestead plots, in order to secure the production of food.

New report paints a worrying picture, provides recommendations on what can be done.
About 60 percent of the region’s people are employed by the agricultural sector, which depends almost entirely on irrigation.
Turning around a "toxic" relationship.
What does male migration have to do with water scarcity in Central Asia?
