Prospects for agricultural water management

The country needs an integrated approach to improved water management in order to address threats to the water resources in the near future (SOPAC, 2007).

The protection of water resources may be achieved through (MMERE, 2007):

  • Development and implementation of improved water resource management
  • Improved policies and regulations addressing water supply and demand
  • Conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater as adaptive measure to addressing the impacts of climate variability/change
  • Management of pollution threats to freshwater
  • Institutional and capacity building
  • Environmental monitoring programs relating to water resource and wastewater management
