Knowledge Note

Agricultural Water Management (AWM) includes irrigation and drainage, water management in rain-fed agriculture, recycled water reuse, water and land conservation, and watershed management. AWM is essential to food security, but it also plays a fundamental role in building human capital in rural areas. The overwhelming emphasis on technical and engineering matters characteristic of AWM in recent decades has now expanded outward to encompass social and environmental concerns.
