  • Notes: We envisage a world where agriculture thrives in vibrant ecosystems and where the people engaged in agriculture live in good health, enjoy food and nutritional security and have access to everything they need to continually improve their livelihoods.
  • Notes:
  • Notes: WLE targets research to support development in 10 priority river basins and regions. They include: The Andes basin in South America The Limpopo basin in Southern Africa The Zambezi basin in Southern Africa The Volta basin in West Africa The Niger basin in West Africa The Nile basin in East Africa The Indus and Ganges basins in South Asia The Mekong basin in Southeast Asia The Amu Darya and Syr Darya basins in Central Asia The Tigris and Euphrates basins in the Middle East WLE is unique in that it has global scale reach and works in 8 benchmark regions

  • Notes: In addition to the activity clusters, WLE has 2-cross cutting themes that will influence and enhance our research: (i) Gender, poverty and institutions: WLE includes gender, poverty and institutions aspects through a central research functions in order to improve understanding of these issues and enhance WLE impacts. We will ensure that all WLE interventions are pro-poor and benefit men and women equally by analysing data from a gender and equity perspective including where possible by ensuring that data are gender-disaggregated; examining the extent to which male and female farmers have different adoption rates and identifying gender-specific barriers; looking at ways to remediate gender bias in agricultural research; improving women’s access to and involvement in NRM; developing gender sensitive policies for land and water management. (ii) Ecosystem services: within each activity cluster, we will promote ecosystem resilience and seek to enhance and increase the value placed upon each ecosystem services. We will work to provide farmers and pastoralists with production systems that are better adapted to environmental change and which are more resilient to shocks

    2. 2. Humanity’s greatest challenge• To feed 9 billion people in 2050, we need to produce 70% more food without destroying the environment• Rising incomes and population are already contributing to: – Water scarcity – Land degradation – Loss of ecosystem services
    3. 3. CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) Our vision A world in which agriculture thrives within vibrant ecosystems and where rural communities enjoy a decent living and have access to everything they need to continually improve their livelihoods..Photo: David Brazier/IWMI
    4. 4. WLE has 3 main goals… 1. To improve food security and livelihoods of farmers through the sustainable intensification of agriculture 2. To improve the sharing of benefits and risks among users of different ecosystem services through policies that encourage collaborative behaviour and dialogue 3. To strengthen institutional arrangementsPhoto: David Brazier/IWMI that cut across sectors and national boundaries, foster equitable and sustained development, improve resource governance and support productive and resilient solutions
