Irrigation subsidy methodology workshop
The Global Subsidies Initiative, in partnership with The International Water Management Institute (IWMI), is holding a two-day workshop to discuss a common methodology for measuring irrigation subsidies. The aim is help build consensus on a methodology to define irrigation subsidies in a way that is technically sound and realistic, while taking into account wide variations in the availability of data. Ultimately, the GSI intends to arrive at an agreed method that will have the capacity, when applied to individual countries, to generate data that can be meaningfully compared across countries. A draft review paper by a GSI consultant, Ravinder Malik, "Towards a common methodology for measuring irrigation subsidies", will be presented at the workshop.
