1 Water and Livelihoods Initiative (WLI) Decision Support Tools & Models for: Assessing Water Balance & Productivity Dr. Caroline King (WLI Manager)

2 WLI Objectives & Outputs Goal NARRATIVE improve the livelihoods of households and communities The goal of WLI is to improve the livelihoods of households and communities in the benchmark sites of the participating countries by increasing economic, social and educational opportunities through addressing the key priority issues identified in each country. Purpose To pilot test scaling up To pilot test a sustainable and integrated water, land use and livelihoods strategy in the benchmark sites for scaling up, which will optimize new and income generating crop and livestock activities. Outputs strategies for policy-makingtools 1. Integrated water and land-use strategies for policy-making, tools for sustainable benchmark management and organizational mechanisms for community inclusion at the benchmark sites. Enhanced knowledge 2. Enhanced knowledge, skills and qualifications for key stakeholders in the benchmark sites. rural livelihoods of farmers 3. Improved rural livelihoods of farmers in the benchmark sites through the adoption of sustainable land and water management practices and livelihood strategies

3 W ORKSHOP P URPOSE : To identify scope for available watershed and basin-scale water balance assessments to include scenarios demonstrating improvements in integrated management of land, water and livelihoods to be achieved through upscaling of WLI pilot-tested strategies and technologies

A STRATEGIC VIEW

5 Workshop Objectives  Review available assessments of present and future water availability and use at the watershed and basin-scale and identify scope for updates to reflect the full potential of improvements in on-farm land and water management > Inform regional decision-makers and other key stakeholders at the benchmark sites of the relevance and potential further use of outputs from decision support tools to evaluate options for improved management of land, water and livelihoods > Stimulate knowledge exchange and research collaboration amongst WLI research teams using and developing tools to support integrated water and land-use strategies with key stakeholders

6 Results Anticipated Outputs > Enhanced Annual Reports, Country Research Reports and PPTs from 8 countries and regional team > Short workshop report including list of participants > Materials online for other interested researchers to benefit from Outcomes > WLI thematic research group on decision support tools and models activated > WLI thematic research group on water use efficiency activated > Improved connection of WLI pilot testing to strategic level decision-making and improved outscaling strategies for integrated land and water management > Improved management of land, water and livelihoods in WLI countries

7 1. ….WHAT IS A LIVELIHOOD? (see Workshop Report on WLI Website) 2. WHAT IS AN IMPROVED LIVELIHOOD? 3. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO IMPROVE RURAL LIVELIHOODS? 4. HOW WILL WE KNOW THAT IT IMPROVED? 5. HOW WILL WE KNOW THAT THE IMPROVEMENT RESULTED FROM THE WLI PILOT TESTING ACTIVITY?
