Topic of the practice

Inclusion of guidance on climate change in the watering community office

Good Practice Information

The Department of Agriculture of the Government of Aragon (Spain) introduced a guidance on climate change through the watering community office (WATER CoRe). As result, a platform for farmers was created where they receive daily recommendations for watering according to local agricultural and climate conditions. This platform serves as a tool to optimise water use, and engages local farmers in daily water-saving activities.

Evidence of success

The practice supports the implementation of a common water management scheme with the direct involvement of local farmers, technicians and local authorities.
