dc.description.abstractEnding hunger, given Asia’s swelling population, increasing urbanization and climate change, presents a huge challenge for farmers. With land and water resources stretched, they must double their output from existing cultivated areas. Irrigation systems will be vital to help meet future food needs and reverse past environmental degradation, even given higher yields from rainfed agriculture. However, the irrigation sector must first be revitalized to unlock its potential, by introducing innovative practices and changing the way it is governed and managed.
