New CGIAR research programme to tackle global crises in water, food and the environment


Date: 10/04/2012


The CGIAR ‘Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems’ is a ten year commitment to bring about a radical transformation in the way land, water and natural systems are managed. It is being led by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI). The new research programme is the latest in a series of initiatives designed to promote more joined-up-thinking on agricultural research for development at CGIAR. Spanning over 10 years, this research initiative will investigate multidisciplinary subjects such as irrigation, rainfed agricultural systems, river basin management, resource reuse and recovery, and ICTs.
