ATB Colloquium:
Linking increases in water use efficiency for food production at the farm scale to global projections for the Ninh Thuan province, Vietnam

More productive management of water is needed to meet the nutritional demands of a growing and prospering world population. Water scarcity limits agricultural production even in tropical environments, such as the province of Ninh Thuan, Vietnam, where rainfall is erratic and unevenly distributed over the year. In the project ‘Linking increases in water productivity for food production at the farm scale to global projections’, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), three partners (ATB, IFPRI, SIWRP) are developing a model framework that can be used to improve water use at the farm scale. The global model (IMPACT Water) that computes socio-economic and water resource-related impacts on food production and demand is being linked with the AgroHyd model on water productivity at the farm level using a case study of the Ninh Thuan Province in Vietnam. Data has been gathered by SIWRP for 18 farms from the upland and the lowland areas for a survey on water productivity in agriculture. In his presentation, Mr. Tran will give a short introduction to his institute (SIWRP) and an overview of the study region.
