Irrigation system passing over water and field


Georgia Flow Incentive Trust

_____________________________________________

GA-FIT is designing a new tool to improve drought response to protect Georgia’s streams while also protecting the economic well-being of Georgia farmers. The project is capitalizing on recent data and research to design a more targeted, quantified, and effective approach to agricultural interventions during drought, with a focus on incentives for voluntary irrigation suspension. By field-testing new incentives for drought response, we aim to attain benefits for endangered species and water users when water is most scarce – and most needed.
