International Expert Workshop on

Water on Agricultural Practices: Training the Trainers

15 Sep (arrival) – 21 Sep (departure), 2019
Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Overview
Water use in agriculture plays a critical role of any discussion of water and food security since farming activities account for around 70% of water used in the world today.
Inefficient agriculture contributes for a great waste of surface water and also contributes to groundwater depletion and its associated consequences. Also an excessive use of nutrients and pesticides are key sources of water pollution in many regions. Hence, the sustainable management of water in agriculture is critical not only to increase agricultural production but also to support continued economic growth in other sectors.

Objectives
The International Expert Workshop on “Water on Agricultural Practices: Training the Trainers” will serve as a forum to discuss advance solutions to improve the management of agricultural water risks on developing countries.

Target Audience:

Number of participants:
The number of participants is limited to 30. Participants from exceed-Swindon partner universities are given first priority.
