Water access, rights & allocation in times of scarcity

Improve understanding of how development policies, projects and practices influence water insecurities that affect urban and rural livelihoods; agricultural water productivities; viability of fisheries and aquaculture; and ecosystem integrity during seasons and years when water is scarcest, in particular under climate change.

Based on this understanding and analysis of existing professional norms, discourses, projects and policies, the program will suggest reforms and political strategies likely to improve access, rights and allocation of water for poor, vulnerable or otherwise marginalized social groups of women and men while also helping maintain critical ecosystems in times of scarcity.
