Webinar “Analytical and legal frameworks for irrigation policy”
There is a general consensus that national strategies as well as legal frameworks and tools for water management must rely on accurate, up-to-date and divisible data. Without data, ie their analysis, the agriculture and water sector will remain the most vulnerable to various impacts, especially the impact of climate change. The webinar was organized within the project “Support to the Development of Irrigation Programs in Serbia” implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UN FAO) and the EBRD. International experts, who are already assisting various countries in processing and using data necessary for proper water management and developing legal frameworks in this area, introduced the audience to key aspects of water management, based on analytical bases, presenting tools, approaches and best practices. The webinar explored how effective data management has influenced the development of policies and legal frameworks in other countries. UN FAO experts introduced us to the key aspects of water management, based on analytical bases, presenting tools, approaches and best practices.
Answers to all questions and introduction to new platforms and applications for water resources management were provided by representatives of the UN FAO Jippe Hoogeveen, Senior Adviser on Land and Water Resources, on “Water Computing”, Livia Peiser, Adviser on Land and Water Resources on Transforming Water Use in Agriculture by New Technologies and Innovations ”and Valerie Johnson, Legal Adviser on“ Data and Research-Based Policy and Legal Framework ”, together with over 40 participants in the“ Analytical and Legal Frameworks for Irrigation Policy ”webinar, held 10 .December 2021 on the Zoom platform.
