Water for the rural poor
New factsheet
pixel
pixel

This, which is part of a series of Land and Water factsheets on the work of the division, showcases how we aim at increasing the impact of poverty-reduction strategies on poor smallholder farmers through investments in water, by recognizing the diversity and complexity of their conditions and tailoring interventions accordingly. By increasing the knowledge on the role of water for rural livelihoods and adopting participatory approaches focusing on smallholder farmers, we work on building resilience, identifying adapted water technologies and promoting smart investments in water for poverty reduction.
