Improved capacity enhances water use efficiency in St Kitts and Nevis

Posted: 2011-12-30

GWP Caribbean has contributed to improving water use efficiency in the agricultural sector in the twin-island state by providing training and a technical resource manual.

Twenty extension officers, farmers and water utility staff were given detailed information about on-farm water management, irrigation, and water use. Training was done in collaboration with the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute. Including water utility representatives brought the two sectors closer together and fostered a greater understanding of the needs and challenges faced by each in meeting water needs. GWP Caribbean developed the manual with the assistance of a senior irrigation expert and then developed it into a training tool which could be used both by trainers for teaching, and by practitioners as a reference tool. St Kitts was the first country to receive the training and the manual.
