    Stagnating yield and declining input use efficiency in irrigated wheat of the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) coupled with diminishing availability of water for agriculture is a major concern of food security in South Asia. The objective of our study was to establish an understanding of how wheat yield and input use efficiency can be improved and how land leveling and crop establishment practices can be modified to be more efficient in water use through layering of precision-conservation crop management techniques. The ?precision land leveling with raised bed?

    This article examines the processes of change in a large lagoon system, and its implications for how commons can be managed as commons in the long run. We use two related concepts in our analysis of change: commonisation and decommonisation; commonisation is understood as a process through which a resource gets converted into a jointly used resource under commons institutions that deal with excludability and subtractability, and decommonisation refers to a process through which a jointly used resource under commons institutions loses these essential characteristics.

    Despite challenges in many river

    basins, overall the planet has

    enough water to meet the full range

    of peoples’ and ecosystems’ needs

    for the foreseeable future, but

    equity will only be achieved through

    judicious and creative management.

    This working paper reviews the experiences of the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) with 14 “small

    grants for impact” that were contracted in early 2006 and operated for periods of 12 to 18 months. For a total

    investment of under US$1 million – less than the equivalent of a typical 3-5 year CPWF research for development

    project in Phase 1, the small grant projects made significant contributions to identifying water and food technology

    for specific end users (thus showing the potential of CPWF research in general); to better understanding of

    The Ganges Basin Development Challenge (BDC) research program will focus on brackish-water coastal zones in the Ganges Basin, where agricultural lands have a maximum salinity greater than 5 ppt (parts per thousand) in the dry season (salinity is lower in the wet season). The BDC vision of success requires innovations in water governance, improved availability of dry-season water, improved practices for managing salt-affected lands, and intensification and diversification of farm systems.

    Inundation and severe flooding in the coastal areas is a frequent occurrence in Bangladesh. This leads to loss of life and property as well as severe impacts on livelihoods. The government of Bangladesh has been investing steadily in coastal zone management through construction and rehabilitation of polders. This project is about water governance and community based management of polders in coastal zones in Bangladesh. The challenges facing the polder communities are complex and similar to those faced by many communities in which water is used for multiple purposes.
