Overview

The CWANA Water Benchmarks Project is a community-based venture that involves farmers directly in the testing and implementing new options of water management in dry areas of WANA. It aims at developing modern technologies to improve water productivity so that those technologies are adopted and disseminated among the targeted groups, achieve optimum rain water/water resource use efficiency through supplemental irrigation and integrate water harvesting and water use efficiency in production systems in dry environments. It also aims at developing water productivity techniques and systems in rainfed and irrigated systems.
