Water and Productivity Project (WAPRO)
Project Phase: 2015 -2021
Implemented by: HELVETAS
WAPRO – Multi-stakeholders join forces to enhance water productivity
WAPRO project offers a holistic push-pull-policy approach that encourages water stewardship – collective action towards the sustainable use of water.
Farmers are the main consumers of global water reserves. They are also among the poorest citizens of the world. Poverty prevents them from accessing water-saving knowledge and technology to supplement their know-how.
Farmers master water saving methods. For example, by switching to shorter furrows, which allow for more even water distribution, farmers in Kyrgyzstan save 30-40% of water.
The Project promotes diversified crops that use water and other resources more efficiently than monoculture crops.
