Water Productivity and Food Security: Global Trends and Regional Patterns reviews the needs for water productivity improvements in agriculture. It addresses three distinct questions pertaining to agricultural water productivity improvement in developing countries. They are: i) which are the regions where water is a limiting factor for raising agricultural outputs and water productivity improvements is necessary for enhancing them to prevent additional environmental water stress; ii) what are the technological measures in irrigation that can raise agricultural water productivity and result in water saving at various scales, from plant to plot to farm to scheme to river basin under different basin conditions, and under what condition they help conserve water resources, and, iii) in the developing economies of South Asia and Africa, what opportunities really exist for raising water productivity and improving water economy at basin scale, without compromising on resilience of the farming systems, food security and employment generation in the farm sector?

Water Productivity and Food Security: Global Trends and Regional Patterns provides a framework to characterize river basins based on water availability, water supplies, water uses and water demands to ascertain the need and measures available for improving crop water productivity that would be effective at various scales, i.e., plant-level, plot-level, irrigation system level and basin level. This is an essential reference for anyone interested in water management and agriculture/ food security.  

- Presents clear explanations covering the physical and technical measures which can be adopted to improve productivity of water in agricultural production under different basin conditions
- Offers the physical strategies for improving water productivity in agriculture in different agroecological regions, and institutional and policy measures to affect them
- Includes methodologies for assessing food security challenges of individual nations, with the help of empirical analysis using global data sets
