DESCRIPTION

Solutions in response to many of the challenges in the area of water already exist, however they are not necessarily known or implemented by the people faced with those issues. For instance, the training of smallholder farmers on irrigation best practices can have a significant impact on the sustainable management of water resources. This session will therefore focus on ways to empower people, develop capacities and share information across the different sectors and segments in society.
