The main objective of the IWACA-TECH project is to develop a model/ methodology that enables the improved efficient water use and increase water productivity of a very large water user in the water scarce lower Incomati river basin, to the benefit not only of the sugar company but also securing water for other users down the river. Moreover, this project contributes to one of the objectives of the Netherlands development cooperation of increasing agricultural water productivity of 25%.
