    The project Knowing water better - Towards a more equitable and sustainable access to natural resources to achieve food security (KnoWat) established a geospatial database based on the water monitoring tool Water Productivity through Open-access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR) project. The database was used to assess agricultural water consumption and water productivity in Rwanda by interpreting satellite images in the Yanze, Muvumba and Lower Akagera catchments.

    The project “Knowing water better: towards fairer and more sustainable access to natural resources” (KnoWat) has built stronger water governance processes in Rwanda, Senegal and Sri Lanka. The project has strengthened national capacities in water accounting and water productivity in agriculture, using the latest remote sensing technologies and training hundreds of water experts. KnoWat has also developed and tested a methodology for assessing water tenure to shed light on the rules and regulations governing access and allocation of water resources. This short publication summarizes the key accomplishments of the KnoWat project in Sri Lanka.
