    Abstract

    In the 21st century, agriculture and water are crucial for poverty alleviation, economic growth and sustainable development. Water is endangered as a natural resource base in both quantitative and in qualitative ways, water is crucial in assuring food supply and hydrological extremes create direct threats to human life. Agriculture is a major user of water withdrawals. Integrated land and water resource management is needed in Africa, the continent with the lowest food security. This report describes the CSD-17 messages on this topic, the discussion following the CSD-17, activities underway and recommendations for further implementation.
