Focus: Enhance water and land productivity in key non- tropical dry area agro-ecologies (rainfed, irrigated, and agro-pastoral). Water resources are the most limiting component of agricultural production in dry areas. ICARDA will therefore continue to improve agricultural water productivity and, in collaboration with our sister center the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and others, develop its framework further for wider adoption. Core to the research effort of SRP5 is enhancing and restoring the provisioning, regulating, and supporting ecosystem services in dry areas. SRP5 will build upon past achievements, which range from rainwater harvesting using landscape modification to supplemental and deficit irrigation. We will take a more integrated approach to managing soil, land, and water resources across the extensive rangelands of non-tropical dry areas through links with the rangeland, livestock, and value chain expertise embedded in the Center. Further, with partner ARIs we will investigate alternative opportunities to diversify the livelihoods of the communities in rangelands, for example in renewable energy.
