Knowing water better: Towards fairer and more sustainable access to natural resources

28 December, 2020

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Land and Water Division recently launched the new website of the project “Knowing water better: Towards fairer and more sustainable access to natural resources – KnoWat”.

The KnoWat project aims at strengthening water governance processes in Rwanda, Senegal and Sri Lanka through capacity building in cutting-edge water accounting methods using remote sensing backed by FAO’s WaPOR portal. An innovative approach for the assessment of water tenure will be also developed to help securing access to water for the rural poor and for food security, as well as improving resilience to climate change.

The website s available in English and French, and provides a complete set of in-depth information on the project’s approaches, methodologies and activities in the countries and at global level, and a series of advocacy materials about the concept of water tenure.
