GAIN Target Sectors-Energy

GAIN Target Sectors:

Water

Reliable water supplies are

the basis for economies

and civilizations. Industry,

agriculture and human health

can be immediately impacted

by alterations in water levels

and precipitation. Water efficiency technology is in high demand; resilient water distribution systems will save lives.

Food & Agriculture

Billions around the world

depend on agriculture for their

livelihood and subsistence.

Population growth,

environmental degradation

and climate change all

add stress to agricultural

production. Through research and development, more drought-resistant crops, irrigation techniques and delivery systems can provide safety nets for farmers experiencing increasing uncertainty.

Coastal Protection

Rising sea levels will create

challenges for any nation

with a coastline and its

communities living near the

sea. Land loss will not only

lead to a decline in the value

of coastal property, but also eliminate livelihoods dependent on fishing and tourism.
