Enabling the Business of Agriculture

Securing water

The securing water indicator measures laws and regulations that help domestic farmers make better decisions as to whether and how much to invest in irrigation for their farm. The indicator is focused on two specific challenges that arise for some farmers: an inability to accurately gauge water-related risks to their farming because of a lack of available information, and a risk of getting crowded out by bigger water users in the future.
