This week the training program on Real Water Savings in Thailand was started. This training is part of the project ‘Delivering Training on Real Water Savings (ReWaS) for the Regional Water Scarcity Program in Bangladesh, Indonesia, India, Thailand and Afghanistan’ that FutureWater is rolling out in cooperation with the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (RAP) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
In this project, FutureWater offers a training program on Real Water Savings (ReWaS) to water management professionals from five different countries. ReWaS is a simple tool developed by FutureWater, to estimate the potential for generating real water savings from various agronomic, water management and technical practices in irrigated agriculture. The training will offer a tailored training package that facilitates an assessment of the impact of field scale crop-water interventions at the basin scale.
For the online training in Thailand, we started with an enthusiastic group of 25 water management professionals ranging from government officials to university students. We are looking forward to working together on real water savings for the coming weeks!
