Project Profile

AWP Water Accounting in Practice

Duration : November 19, 2019 - December 6, 2021
(Extended to July 26, 2022)

This activity is designed to: (i) promote the use of water accounting tools at multiple scales (from the field- to basin-level scales), (ii) demonstrate their usefulness in supporting project investment and policy interventions, and (iii) enhance project-level outcomes for beneficiaries (this includes bringing water consumption within sustainable limits). AWP has indicated its interest to collaborate with IWMI, FAO, and their respective country and international partners in the further development of Water Accounting as a practical tool to guide investments in irrigation and more generally agricultural water management and to assess the impacts of these investments, and evaluate water interventions decisions.
