A 3-day training workshop on Enabling Sustainable Solutions for Agriculture and Water Resources
Agriculture in the SAR (South Asian Region) is caught in a low equilibrium trap with low productivity of staples, supply shortfalls, high prices, low returns to farmers and area diversification – all these factors can be a threat to food security. Addressing this issue can have a great impact over the lives of the people in this region. Contributing to sustainable water and agriculture resource management systems can be a challenging task. This workshop is among many other initiatives towards a major goal of food security in the South Asian Region through stocktaking of research, potential and role of technology, and other interdisciplinary initiatives.
The intent of this workshop is three-fold. The first is exploration of activities related to research, developing technologies, and other interdisciplinary initiatives. Secondly, it shall identify gaps that can be addressed through research and development, capacity building, and knowledge management. Lastly, it shall provide a platform to the participants to establish multidisciplinary collaborations.
