CPWF Volta Basin Project “Integrated management of rainwater for crop livestock agro-ecosystems”

  1. 1. A Partner of CPWF Volta Basin Project “Integrated Management of Rainwater for Crop-Livestock agro-ecosystems” (V2): Brief Overview ARI
  2. 2. Andes • Ganges • Limpopo • Mekong • Nile • Volta Project Overall Goal & Objective • Overall Goal Increase crop and livestock productivity through best fit Rainwater Management Strategies (RMS), and to improve water productivity at farm level. • V2 Specific Objective Identify, evaluate, adapt, and disseminate best-fit integrated rainwater management strategies, targeted to different biophysical and socio-economic domains.
  3. 3. Andes • Ganges • Limpopo • Mekong • Nile • Volta V2 Project outputs 1. Baseline characterization and inventory of RMS – review of secondary data, baseline surveys, policy and institutional analysis, value chain analysis, inventory workshops 2. Targeted recommendations for different actors and contexts of best integrated RM – participatory action research, multidisciplinary assessments of effects of selected RMS, modeling. 3. Tools, framework for integrated analysis – testing and adapting frameworks, training, guidelines 4. Dissemination and communication of project outputs – rainwater management innovation platforms and learning alliances with multiple actors, project workshops, project briefs, use of existing and new communication tools 5. Capacity building – training students, farmers and learning by rainwater management practitioners through innovation platforms
