    The Global Framework for Action to Cope with Water Scarcity in Agriculture in the Context of Climate Change (WASAG) has gained increasing recognition since its launch and the establishment of its partnership in April 2017. The progress made to date confirms the relevance and pertinence of the Framework and the commitment of its founding Partners whose work continues to attract new partners. A strategy to guide the work of WASAG for the next four years (2021-2024) has become imperative to build on the achievements of the three years of its existence in order to better respond to the expectations raised, considering the numerous endorsements received and the mandate given to WASAG by countries, including during the 26th and 27th sessions of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)’s Committee on Agriculture (COAG) in 2018 and 2020, respectively. Therefore, this represents an ideal motivated by the commitment demonstrated by the Partners and Stakeholders of WASAG in its foundational years, as illustrated by the WASAG webinar series, of which 10 webinars were held in 2020, attracting hundreds of participants in a competitive environment and which started as an adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic. The strategy takes stock of WASAG achievements and proposes a theory of change through which key action areas are identified from projects on the ground, innovation and data, research and training to advocacy and awareness raising. This is all focused on collaborative solutions, building on the comparative advantages of its partners.

    In 2020, amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 epidemiological situation, the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG) has continued to work on addressing pressing issues related to water scarcity in agriculture in a changing climate. WASAG organized a series of webinars to pursue its mandate under new digital means, as webinars were recognized as an opportunity to quickly adapt to the new current challenges. Using the combine expertise and resources of its many Partners, WASAG presented a variety of topics related to water scarcity and agriculture to WASAG Partners, stakeholders and the interested public. These topics included water and gender, financing mechanisms, water and nutrition, drought preparedness, sustainable agriculture water use and saline agriculture which also include promoting quinoa as a drought and salt-tolerance crop. With ten webinars organized between May and December 2020, this report highlights the key messages given by a wide variety of speakers that participated in making this new initiative a real success. It is expected that this report will lead to more in-depth capacity development in the several topics discussed, to collaboration in developing and implementing projects addressing these topics and to offering a variety of innovative solutions to the communities, countries and regions that have to cope with water scarcity in agriculture.
