The main objective of the workshop is to bring together experts and stakeholders from the water and agriculture sectors to discuss the needs and challenges of both sectors, to share ideas and thoughts on better alignment of the two sectorial policies, exchange good examples and experiences on sustainable agricultural practices and provide input for the finalisation of guidance document.
The workshop will particularly focus on three pillars:
