The objective of the project is to co-develop, with producers and local water management organizations, potential adaptation strategies to prevent water use conflicts in farming communities in the face of climate change. An overview of potential water use conflicts under current and future climate conditions for five agricultural regions along with a spatially referenced tool for analyzing potential conflicts is being developed.
From 2016 to 2019
This project will prevent water use conflicts in farming communities.
