Supporting policy reform

Two new USAID-funded projects on water policy, in Egypt and Jordan, will be launched later this year. They will examine how current policies shape farmers’ irrigation decisions, quantify the impacts on groundwater use, and identify opportunities for policy reform to encourage sustainable use of water.

In Iran, Jordan and Morocco, research on seed policies will begin in 2013 under the Wheat CRP. The aim is to identify policy and institutional options to strengthen seed cooperatives and other community-based channels to produce and distribute high-quality seed of improved varieties at affordable prices.
