  • Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). November 2012
  • This report proposes a methodology for identifying the locations where water constraints are a major factor affecting smallholders' livelihoods and where agricultural water management in general, as well as specific technologies, can boost the poorest farmers' livelihoods.

The approach presented in the report has been implemented and tested in surveys conducted in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania and Zambia, and in the states of Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal in India.
