Control of Multi-Reservoir Systems and Transboundary WEF nexus Models for Infrastructure Planning

Based on recent trends, water stress is likely to increase globally with climate change. At the same time, the world need to produce more food for a growing population with more meat-based diets. Therefore, irrigated agriculture will play a bigger role in the future, especially in regions like sub Saharan Africa where rain-fed agriculture is currently predominant. Increasing water productivity of irrigated agriculture is therefore vital for a food secure future. As consortium partners in the RVO funded IWACA-TECH project, we develop models and advanced control strategies for precision irrigation, to enable the management of water use efficiency utilising data from multiple data sources (in-situ and remote sensing based soil moisture, weather and canopy cover data sources.)
