Special attention is given to those issues which are judged to be restricting the growth and development of the broader agriculture sector, and in particular of the family farming sector in developing countries. The project focuses on 10 sectoral topics, and this position will support the team working on Access to Water, seeking to inform and encourage policy and regulatory decisions that support inclusive, efficient and sustainable governance for the allocation and utilization of water resources for agriculture.
