INTELLIGENT WATER MANAGEMENT

IWM Program

“The Intelligent Water Management Program aims to enable and improve the systems of intersectoral cooperation, sustainable coffee farming, environmental protection and decision-making that contribute to face challenges of water imbalance in the coffee sector and its value chain, establishing environmental, social and production conditions to alleviate poverty and encourage peaceful coexistence and sustainable development in the Colombian countryside”.

VISION

By 2018, the five IWM departments have managed to develop an integrated river basins management model, which will be scalable, sustainable and will generate evident positive impacts on the production, social and environmental dimensions of coffee regions, with the capacity to transcend to other sectors.

PRINCIPLES

Integrated Principles and their Alignment

“The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have gender equality and women’s empowerment at their core, and include a target to ‘double agricultural productivity and income of small-scale food producers, particularly women.’ Indeed, rural women are critical to the success of almost all the 17 SDGs.”
