Drop By Drop: Conservation, Irrigation, and Innovation
Economic development, led by agriculture, has put global water resources under enormous strain. The world’s freshwater use is growing at more than double the rate of population growth. Conserving these finite resources, while meeting the demands of growing economies, requires focused efforts to use water more efficiently.
More water-productive irrigation could transform Tanzanian agriculture, substantially increasing the crops produced for local and export markets, and allowing farmers to extend the growing season.
The results presented in this report brought together a wide range of stakeholders to discuss the results and the way forward with the bigger aim to catalyze action on water resources reform.
The 2030 WRG Tanzania Partnership has identified key focus areas for our future work, and is now formalizing the working groups to take forward the debate and practical actions in the areas of water use efficiency, water source protection and water security and cross-sectoral collaboration.
The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) is a public, private, civil society partnership that supports country-level collaboration designed to unite diverse groups with a common interest in the sustainable management of water resources.
