This digital story was produced to communicate the key messages resulting from the Nile Basin Development Challenge (NBDC). Key message 7 is to attend to downstream and off-site benefits of rainwater management as well as upstream or on-farm benefits and costs.The Nile BDC aimed to improve the livelihoods of farmers in the Ethiopian highlands through land and water management and was funded by the Challenge Program for Water and Food. The eight key messages constitute a 'new integrated watershed rainwater management paradigm' and are based on the outputs and outcomes of trans-disciplinary scientific research for development.
