Water Productivity

Water productivity is a much discussed topic in the water and agricultural sector, especially in water-scarce countries. Between March and May 2017, a series of master classes on water productivity were organized by MetaMeta together with RAIN and NWP, under the auspices of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The master classes were meant for SMEs and NGOs interested in food security and water safety in water scarce areas. They provided the participants with latest developments, broader knowledge and the opportunity to jointly explore market opportunities. Presentations and recording can be found below.
