WaPOR, remote sensing for water productivity

WaPOR applications

WaPOR, the FAO open-access portal to monitor water productivity through remote sensing, allows to calculate and distribute key data for monitoring and understanding water use in agriculture. In this way, it provides governments and farmers with reliable information to support decisions and targeted interventions on more efficient use of water: Government agencies use it to monitor the state of their natural resource base and promote their efficient use. Service providers use it to assist farmers in obtaining more reliable yields by monitoring crop health and vegetation trends.

The series of applications and case studies described in this section presents how the use of WaPOR can help increase water productivity and support governments and farmers to become more resilient to drought.
