The water advantage: seeking sustainable solutions for water stress

The water advantage: seeking sustainable solutions for water stress The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) recently released a new report, showing that sustainable investment in freshwater ecosystems in developing countries helps farmers reduce the impact from floods, droughts and water pollution. ‘The Water Advantage: Seeking Sustainable Solutions for Water Stress’, shows that by improving access to clean water and helping farmers manage water resources more effectively communities are more resilient to climate change and environmental shocks. The report, that draws evidence from a review of IFAD-supported projects in six countries, shows that sustainable solutions such as drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting and saltwater tolerant crops will go a long way to protecting the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and food security for millions of people around the world.
