As water becomes scarcer in many countries, governments increasingly have to deal with the considerable challenges of water management. Sound information on water vailability and use is key to shaping water policies that aim to provide equitable and sustainable use of increasingly scarce water resources. Accurate information on agricultural water withdrawal is particularly important to planners and decision-makers involved in water management, as agriculture represents the largest water us er in many countries, representing about 70 percent of total withdrawal worldwide.

The AQUASTAT Programme was initiated with a view to presenting a comprehensive picture of water resources and irrigation in developing countries and providing systematic, upto-date and reliable information on water for agriculture and rural development. This report presents the results of the most recent survey carried out in the 53 countries of Africa, and it analyses the changes that have occurred in the ten years since the first survey. Following the AQUASTAT methodology, the survey relied as much as possible on country-based statistics and information.

Most of the large rice irrigation systems in Southeast Asia have been designed for rice irrigation under a supply-driven mode. Despite their huge contribution to agricultural production, there is a general consensus that these large rice irrigation systems have not lived up to expectations because of a legacy of poor institutional arrangements and system design, degraded infrastructure, poor management and stagnation in the face of rapid transformations of agriculture and pressures on their water supply.

La gestion de l’eau par les petits exploitants agricoles (y compris toutes les formes d’irrigation informelle, privée, eau pour l’élevage, pêche etc.) – la GEA à petite échelle- recèle un potentiel de développement important encore largement inexploité. Le projet financé par le FIDA et mis en oeuvre par la FAO et l’IWMI est une opportunité pour comprendre les conditions de succès pour le développement de toutes les formes informelles de gestion de l’eau en agriculture et pour améliorer l’efficacité et les performances des projets de développement.
