Improving water use efficiency in Mediterranean agriculture : what limits the adoptin of new technologies?

Objective

The International Congress InterDrought-II (ID-2), to be held at FAO, Rome, in September 2005 will
attract the best researchers on water use efficiency and agriculture from all around the world. ID-2 will
provide a unique opportunity to present and discuss the most recent scientific and technological
advances on how to mitigate the effects of drought on crop productivity.
In such context, the WUEMED workshop herein proposed, will be held at the end of ID-2, and
workshop participants will interact with ID-2 participants through different activities. The objective of
WUEMED is to build up a multidisciplinary forum (with researchers, policy makers and end users)
where to discuss how the knowledge and technology generated through the past and ongoing
INCO-MED projects together with the scientific evidence presented in ID-2 may be transferred to
technical improvements and from that to Mediterranean agriculture. The participants will eventually
identify what are the promising techniques and practices to improve water use efficiency and
sustainability of Mediterranean agriculture, and the miscellaneous constraints that limit their adoption
for the end users.
