IFAD at World Water Week: Building climate resilience and incentivizing African farmers
26 August 2020
With a rich and unique history spanning 29 years, World Water Week has developed into the world’s most influential, innovative and dynamic movement focused on transforming global water challenges.
World Water Week is organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and takes place between 24 and 28 August.
IFAD’s side event will explore the potential of Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) to reward farmers for effective water and soil management and the protection of watersheds across Africa.
Various PES approaches will be assessed alongside good practice examples before an open discussion around risks and opportunities and recommendations for future action.
