The primary purpose of the SWP is water supply. SWP was designed to deliver nearly 4. Water supply depends on rainfall, snowpack, runoff, water in storage facilities, and pumping capacity from the Delta, as well as operational constraints for fish and wildlife protection, water quality, and environmental and legal restrictions. Benefits The SWP was designed to provide many additional benefits:
Most of the agricultural production in developing countries comes from some of the poorest people -individual smallholder farmers. They struggle to grow food with little water, often not because water is scarce, but because they lack the means to harness what is available.
The AgWater Solutions project aims to make this happen by: Central to the approach and to effective AWM solutions is market access — farmers will only invest in AWM options if they make economic sense. The project's Vision of Success is that the livelihoods of 65 million poor women and men in Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia are significantly improved through enhanced agricultural production, on-farm income and food security due to the application of knowledge and recommendations generated in this project.
Why are AWM Solutions needed? AWM is a promising investment option to improve the livelihoods and food security of the rural poor. Sound AWM is a proven factor in rural poverty reduction but in many places the rural poor have no access to or limited control over water resources.
This project was devised as a 3-year program to evaluate options for improving smallholder AWM and to create and disseminate a portfolio of promising interventions that can be deployed in support of agrarian poverty reduction for female and male smallholders in Sub-Saharan Africa SSA and South Asia SA.
The majority of the world's poor-some 1. Of this number, some million are still considered food insecure, and for SSA in particular this situation is worsening with the number of food insecure in the region nearly doubling from million in to million in Comprehensive Assessment CA A key question is how to reverse this trend and improve the food security and livelihood status of these most vulnerable groups.
The goal of the project is to stimulate and support successful pro-poor, gender-equitable AWM investment, policy and implementation strategies through concrete, evidence-based knowledge and decision-making tools.
While the problem of improving smallholder AWM is generally formulated as one of increasing 'access to affordable technology' other factors are involved. Through a continuing process of dialogue, it is trying to define what, where, and how donors, implementers and policymakers should invest in order to achieve the greatest livelihood benefits sustainably and cost-effectively.
As the project nears completion, we can offer a menu of AWM interventions, and supporting intervention strategies, that are promising in terms of techno-economic feasibility, livelihoods benefits, environmental sustainability, and ease of out-scaling.For example, since , the Water Factory 21 Direct Injection Project, located in Orange County, California, has been injecting highly treated recycled water into the aquifer to prevent salt water intrusion, while augmenting the potable ground water supply.
