This session will focus on the systems approach to sustainability and inclusivity as we want to accelerate scale. In the first webinar, our experienced panelists shared their perspectives with more than 490 engaged participants in 66 countries about systemic barriers to scaling farmer led irrigation development. We zoomed in on strengthening supply chains and services and how innovative finance modalities could support social inclusivity.
In this webinar, we raise the question on how accelerating FLI development can be sustainable and inclusive. How do we ensure water security whilst supporting agricultural economic development? What are the incentives across actors within food systems to support sustainable use of water resources? How do we ensure that water access remains equitable to all water users? What is the role of institutions and regulations to safeguard and stimulate water stewardship?
