Digital Applications for Improved Water Resources Management

Water digitalization in the agricultural sector is a very significant step towards rationalization of water use in the largest user sector for water resources in the MENA region. ICARDA and NARSS have been backstopping the digitalization of water and agricultural sectors in the MENA region at all levels and in all areas even in the most isolated and fragile dry areas to facilitate faster, better, and more accurate data collection, knowledge sharing, analysis, and decision-making. This session will present the developments in technologies, irrigation applications and tools, digital analytics, remote sensing, networks, knowledge sharing hubs, data-driven platforms, and data pools. The event will involve presentations and panel discussion about innovations, best practices, and success stories from the farm to basin levels.
