The Global Framework for Action to Cope with Water Scarcity in Agriculture in the Context of Climate Change (in short, the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture, WASAG) has been designed to bring together key players across the globe and from different sectors to tackle the collective challenge of using water better in agriculture to ensure food security for all.

It is a Partnership hosted by FAO and consisting of government agencies, international organizations, research institutions, advocacy groups and professional/membership organizations. WASAG fosters collaboration among its partners for the development and deployment of policies, strategies, and programmes, enhancing field capacity for the adaptation of agriculture to water scarcity.

It is an initiative to collaborate in supporting countries and stakeholders in their commitments and plans related to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, the Paris Climate Agreement (including implementing nationally determined contributions) and other plans and programmes related to agriculture and water.

"In reflection of the creation and achievements of the WASAG it can be said that since WASAG’s launch in 2016, it has been established and grown into an excellent Framework and partnership that has been endorsed and supported at various international fora."

– Felix Reinders, Chair of WASAG
