Water-wise,Yemenis most commonly identified with scarce resources and arid landscapes. Less known are its longstanding users-led water management systems. The ingenuity and efficiency of these systems was such that they the country could meet its food/ water needs for about 1000 years, despite its climate and geography.  TheWaterChannel created a video series called ‘Building on Practice,’ documenting case studies in local water management from Yemen.

The modelers of the cropping systems in INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique) have joined their effort in the CLIMATOR Project, coordinated by N. Brisson, to study the effect of the cropping systems on the water recharge of the aquifers.

This collective study underlines the necessary adaptation of the cropping systems where the irrigated water comes from the catchment itself. In some situations, the available water for irrigation in summer will be determined by the chosen surrounding rainfed crops.
