A new report by the United Nations University (UNU-INWEH) analyzes the interlinkages between groundwater and the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets. The SDGs of the 2030 Development Agenda do not, as a rule, account explicitly for groundwater, but it is clear that groundwater already plays and will continue to play a significant role in sustainable development. The report suggests a structured way to improve the visibility of groundwater in the SDG framework as it continues to develop.
Against a backdrop of worsening vulnerability to climate-related risks in India’s agriculture, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) is launching a mobile app, called AgRISE, in support of a new national agricultural insurance scheme.
The collapse of a dam in southeastern Laos triggered massive flooding that killed dozens and displaced thousands of people, bringing a renewed focus on hydroelectric dams in mainland Southeast Asia. In an email interview, Diana Suhardiman, a senior researcher at the International Water Management Institute, discusses the trade-offs associated with large-scale dam projects.
Our partners at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) have contributed to a new paper published in Science that shows that increasing irrigation efficiency through irrigation technologies alone is failing to reduce water consumption and, paradoxically, may even be making water scarcity worse.
By Claudia Sadoff for the Telegraph. Malaria research is currently focused on new methods of genetic mosquito manipulation but the way large dams are currently built and designed creates massive mosquito breeding grounds, adding to the disease burden. Changing dam design is a significant and neglected area of opportunity.
