About this Event
Water is an essential resource for the wellbeing of people, the economy and the planet. Growing water scarcity, increased weather variability due to climate change and deteriorating water quality pose significant challenges for all countries around the world, including Egypt.
Agriculture consumes about 86% of the water in Egypt and improving irrigation efficiency and productivity are widely seen as an important way to foster sustainable agricultural development and food production.
The IFPRI-Egypt Seminar Series is part of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded project called “Evaluating Impact and Building Capacity” (EIBC) that is implemented by IFPRI. The seminar supports USAID’s Agribusiness for Rural Development and Increasing Incomes (ARDII) project’s objectives. In partnership with: International Water Management Institute (IWMI); ICARDA; World Fish.
