Claudio Caamaño promotes technical irrigation on World Water Day
In honor of “World Water Day” celebrated on March 22nd, Claudio Caamaño Vélez, the executive director of the National Irrigation Technification (TNR), highlighted the Dominican Republic’s advantageous position in the face of the global challenges of increasing food production while facing water resource stress. This is due to the irrigation innovations promoted by the government that allow for up to ten times more productivity in certain fields with the same amount of water.
President Luis Abinader’s foresight led to the creation of the National Irrigation Technification, a specialized entity that provides training and financial support to producers in the Dominican Republic. This puts the country in a favorable position to tackle future challenges.
Additionally, the government has proposed a National Commitment for a Pact for Water, which aims to promote sustainability and water security over a 15-year period through open dialogue and collective agreements with society.
