Climate Resilient Agriculture: Translating Data to Policy Actions

January 2019

In follow up to the preparation of nine national assessment reports on the impact of changing water availability on agricultural production, the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) has prepared nine policy briefs providing information on the general background of the assessment, the main findings of the AquaCrop simulation undertaken and a variety of proposed country-specific recommendations on adaptation measures in the agricultural sector. Action oriented institutional, policy and financial arrangements, knowledge generation, and capacity development recommendations were proposed for selected rainfed and irrigated crops in each of the nine countries.
