    Crop mapping using remote sensing in Malawi site, Egypt 2022
    Also available in:

    Crop mapping is key for estimating crop water productivity and the crop production per water consumed. It enables to characterize at a given time the spatial distribution of the main crop. The use of remote sensing applications combined with calibration with field data enable to create time relevant inventories and produce maps for the various cropping seasons to inform strategic planning, production monitoring for decision-making. The availability of accurate crop map is precious information for estimating crop yields, land and water productivity, estimating water consumption needed for water balance, calculation of actual evapotranspiration and it is a key input in water accounting calculation. It also indicates opportunities and risks for food security when looking at staples crops such as cereals.

    The solution to water scarcity in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) region has been illuminated through the "2030 Agenda for Water Efficiency/Productivity & Water Sustainability (WEPS)" project. This initiative has brought significant breakthroughs in eight target countries, namely Algeria, Egypt, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, and Palestine. The accomplishments include the adaptation of water accounting standards in line with global and scientific criteria, the endorsement of the water–energy–food nexus approach, and the development of top-tier knowledge products that have fostered knowledge sharing across these nations. However, challenges like the pandemic aftermath, initial implementation hiccups, and gender inclusion hurdles have arisen. Moving forward, the emphasis is on continued advocacy and collaboration, bolstered commitment to the water–energy–food nexus, expansive knowledge outreach, and enhanced regional partnerships, with an aim to integrate the insights gained into future regional plans.
