Description

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.

Objective(s)

  • Encourage the development of a standardized method of estimating water needs and linking them spatially with the distribution of predicted low-flows under current and future climate conditions
  • Develop and evaluate methods and tools for analyzing and resolving water use conflicts with the participation of water users in two regions.

From 2016 to 2019
