    The Sustaining inclusive Collective Action that Links across Economic and Ecological Scales in upper watersheds (Scales) project fits mainly in People and Water in Catchments Theme (Theme

    2) of the CPWF. Its goal is to contribute to poverty alleviation in the upper watersheds of the

    tropics through improved collective action for watershed resource management within and across

    social-spatial scales. Scales worked though an integrated program of collaborative action

    research, development, and capacity building in key catchments of the Nile and Andes basins, as

    The Nile basin experiences wide spread poverty, lack of food and land and water

    degradation. Because poverty is linked to access to water for crop, fish and

    livestock based livelihoods, improving access to water and increasing agricultural

    water productivity can potentially contribute substantially to poverty reduction.

    The major goal of the Nile Basin Focal project is to identify high potential

    investments that reduce poverty yet reverse trends in land and water

    degradation. This is done through the implementation of six interlinked work

    PN37 (Increasing Water-Use Efficiency for Food Production through Better Livestock Management -

    The Nile River Basin) set out to improve food security, reduce poverty and enhance agroecosystem

    health by managing livestock for more effective overall use of water. PN37 responded to water

    challenges posed by the CPWF, to the Nile Basin Initiative’s goal of better sharing benefits of water

    use, and to global need for the livestock sector to use agricultural water more efficiently and

    The following stories were collected from CPWF project and theme leaders in two rounds. The first round of stories were collected in January 2007 based on the following two questions:

    What has been the most significant technical development or advance made by your 1) CPWF project / theme / basin since the start?

    What has been the most significant partnership change (significant in terms of making 2) scientific progress and/or developmental impact more likely) that has taken place since the start of your CPWF project (or theme or basin)?

    Improving On-farm Agricultural Water Productivity in the Karkheh River Basin

    (KRB) was a CPWF project that aimed at enhancement of agricultural water

    productivity (WP) under irrigated and rainfed conditions in Karkheh River Basin. It

    was launched in Iran through the partnership of ICARDA and the Iranian NARES

    under the Agricultural Extension, Education, and Research Organization.

    The project lasted for more than four years between 2004 and 2008. Whereas

    capacity building was an important part of the agenda, PN8 was a participatory,

    Agriculture – on which we all depend for our food – is under threat from climate change. There is no doubt that systems worldwide will have to adapt, but while consumers may barely notice in developed countries, millions of people in developing countries face a very real and direct threat to their food security and livelihoods. Even without climate change, many agricultural systems in developing countries are nearing crisis point. Feeding a rapidly rising global population is taking a heavy toll on farmlands, rangelands, fisheries and forests. Water is becoming scarce in many regions.

    Challenge Program Water and Food: Basin Focal Project NIGER

    Faced with increasing food and water insecurity as a result of climatic and

    anthropogenic (demography, land use) changes, the CGIAR Challenge Program

    for Water and Food commissioned research in 10 river basins to study the links

    between water, food and poverty. Looking at the Niger river basin, we carry out

    a diagnosis of the hydrologic and agronomic potential, before attempting to

    identify how good agricultural water management may reduce vulnerability in the

    The Basin Focal Project Volta (BFP Volta) was developed along three main steps:

    Assessment of present conditions of the distribution of rural poverty, of farming

    systems with their productivity and water productivity;

    Analysis of opportunities and risks, especially under the double pressure of demography

    and possible climate change, and modeling of water resources to identify sensitivity of

    water allocation to development and climate scenarios; and

    Identification of research gaps and implementation plan.
