The Land and Water Days are jointly organized by FAO, IFAd and WFP - the 3 United Nations Rome-based Agencies - in order to share lessons across projects and activities with a strong land and water component.
The objectives of the meeting are:
- Promoting the use of existing methodologies, guidelines and tools in support to projects design, implementation and performance and impact monitoring (Masscote, Scampis, Aquacrop, LADA-local, PNTD, etc.);
- Understanding knowledge gaps in project design and implementation approaches and working out practical modalities for more effective technical support to field projects at various spatial scales;
- Discussing trends in land and water management and irrigation across regions and implications for activities on the ground; and
- Moving towards strategies and mechanisms for effective, sustainable and people-centered approaches to land and water management.
