New website for WASAG – the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture

31 March, 2022

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) hosts the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG) in its Land and Water Division.

Now, FAO has launched a dedicated website to serve the growing needs of its member countries, as well as those of other partners and stakeholders.

Since its official launch in 2016, WASAG has gained recognition as a collaborative platform where key players across the globe and from different sectors work together towards a common vision of a world whose food systems are secure and resilient to increasing water scarcity in a changing climate.

Key features of the new WASAG website:

  • The main page of the WASAG website is now presented in all six UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).
  • Partners, especially those active in the WASAG working groups, have space to share more information.
  • Space has also been provided for greater engagement at regional and country levels, as provided by the WASAG Strategy for 2021-2024.

The new website has been designed to have sufficient flexibility to accommodate the anticipated continued growth of the partnership as it delivers more outputs in response to the challenges of water scarcity in agriculture.
