This document describes the input required for simulations with AquaCrop. AquaCrop uses a relative small number of explicit parameters and largely intuitive input variables. Those are either widely available or require just simple methods for their determination. Input consists of weather data, crop and soil characteristics, and management practices that define the environment in which the crop will develop.

Our region is food insecure and a net importer of foods. It produces much less food than it requires due to many factors, such as limited arable land and shortage of water resources, and below world average agricultural productivity in many cases. In addition, the region suffers from excessive food losses and wastes. FAO estimated recently that food losses and waste in the world amounts to about 1.3 billion metric tons, and we estimate that our region’s share of these losses and wastes is very significant.

Esta publicación presenta un método para recopilar datos confiables acerca de las funciones protectoras del bosque del suelo y el agua. Este método – de transecto lineal de la cubierta forestal y de evaluación de la erosión – registra datos sobre el dosel del bosque, la cubierta del suelo y la evidencia de erosión. El método fue diseñado a través de un estudio de la FAO para identificar el método de mayor validez científica y menor costo para la recopilación de datos en los países en desarrollo.

Water statistics at all levels are crucial for sustainable development and management. They shape policy, decision-making, and act as a proxy for development. Integrated Water Resources Management plans around basic information on water resources and use. Unfortunately, the nomenclature surrounding water information is often confusing and gives rise to different interpretations and thus confusion.
