How to improve water use in the fruit sector and contribute to sustainable river basin management in the Chilean valley of Aconcagua? This question is addressed in a four-part webinar series hosted by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP), under the framework of the Partners for Water Programme.
This series is an initiative of a Dutch and Chilean alliance of public and private parties, working together to support the agricultural sector in adaptation to increasing drought in the Aconcagua valley. The alliance forms a platform to match Chilean action and knowledge to the international value chains and to Dutch innovations in water and agriculture.
