    From Rome to Praia, the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG) has brought together many partners across the globe and across sectors to tackle pressing water issues related to agriculture and food production. WASAG’s vision is of a world whose food systems are secure and resilient to increasing water scarcity in a changing climate. WASAG’s 1st International Forum held in Praia, Cabo Verde from 19 to 22 March 2019, aimed at identifying concrete - practical, innovative and collaborative - solutions to address water scarcity in agriculture in a changing climate. With a focus on Cabo Verde, Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and West African countries, the Forum was organized around the following six main thematic areas: water and migration, drought preparedness, financing mechanisms, water and nutrition, sustainable agriculture water use and saline agriculture. This executive summary presents the key issues raised during the Forum’s technical sessions and side events, as well as key messages from these sessions. As a result, these discussions which were led by the six working groups of WASAG were synthetized in a set of 17 commitments, called the Praia Commitment which was adopted by the Partners at the conclusion of the Forum. This important milestone will now translate the work of WASAG into actions that can be monitored. The Praia Commitment is an achievement and an undeniable call for action through the Global Framework.
