Water-related research projects in agriculture undertaken in South Africa
Expanded Title:The Water Research Commission (hereafter referred to as WRC) is a statutory organisation established in 1971 by an Act of Parliament. The organisation represents a dynamic hub for water-centred knowledge, innovation and intellectual capital. The WRC provides leadership for water-related research and development through the support of knowledge creation, transfer and application. The WRC is also a networking organisation, linking researchers in South Africa and internationally. In order to build a water-related knowledge base, the WRC invests amongst others in water research and development, forms strategic partnerships and makes best use of nationally and globally available information. One focus area for the WRC is the Key Strategic Area (KSA) Water Utilisation in Agriculture, which concentrates on increasing the efficient use of water for production of food, fibre, fuelwood and timber; ensuring sustainable water resource use; reducing poverty and increasing wealth of people dependent on water-based agriculture. To support their strategic objectives the WRC Director: Water Utilisation in Agriculture has initiated a project to develop a database of all water-related research in agriculture currently undertaken in South Africa. With this process the WRC are interested to find out what projects are carried out, the term and funding of these projects and the organisations and individuals involved in this research.
