Abstract: "The objectives of this project are to study the potential impact of water-saving irrigation (WSI) techniques on water savings and water productivity at field, system, and sub-basin level and to assess the potential of technologies for widespread adoption. The project, which is based on research in China and Australia, is structured around four well-defined subprojects - these being farm and field-level assessment of different water-saving techniques, system and sub-basin level hydrological impacts of farm-level adoption, the effects of policies, institutions, management practices, and infrastructure on the allocation and utilization of water, and the extension of water saving practices."
