In developed and developing countries all over the world, farmers and indigenous and local communities have traditional knowledge, expertise, skills and practices related to food security and to food and agricultural production and diversity. Since its creation in 1945, FAO has recognized the significant contributions these make to food and agriculture, and the relevance of on-farm/in situ and ex situ conservation of genetic resources for food and agriculture.

This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, to the Karkheh River basin in Iran.
The northern part of the Basin where the Karkheh and its tributaries rise is mountainous, cooler, and wetter. The River spills out on to the hotter, lower semi-arid plains at its southern end. Precipitation, mainly in winter, varies from 400-500 mm in the upper part of the Basin falling to about 230 mm in the lower reaches.

IN response to an on-line survey, 76 project leaders and staff gave CPWF Phase 1 a
generally favorable review. Respondents came from 68 CPWF projects in 45 countries on
three continents. The survey sought to help learn what went well in Phase 1, what did not
go so well and can be improved in Phase 2.
Nearly three-quarters of respondents felt that they had achieved different research results,
outcomes and impacts as a result of participation in the CPWF than otherwise possible from

The Karkheh Basin Focal Project was designed to collect and organize baseline information
for future researchers and to highlight future research needs. All collected data is available
in the IDIS system. The specific research findings and recommendations for the basin are
1) The use of non-agricultural water measures is likely to be a more effective solution to
remaining rural poverty in the Karkheh basin and Iran; 2) In the short to medium term,
agricultural water policy and research should focus on improvements in physical water

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,

The Karkheh River Basin is the third largest basin in Iran after Karoon and Dez, and occupies a strategic position on the western boundary of the country. The basin has seen remarkable ancient feats of engineering, and has a long history of wheat and barley production, complemented by horticulture. With the growth of the modern nation-state of Iran, water development has progressed steadily in tandem with rising populations and urbanization.

The CPWF was designed to be different. Developed in response to a call for change in a previous round of Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) system
reform, the CPWF was intended to foster cross-CGIAR cooperation and find ways to bring in new partners. Over time the CPWF has successfully broadened the CGIAR’s sources of
innovative research on water and food. Through its broad partnerships, the program conducts research that leads to positive impact on the poor and to policy change. The CPWF does this by
