Currently, the use of remote sensing data in irrigation water management is very limited, due to its low user-friendliness and the limited acquaintance of irrigation engineers with the remote sensing possibilities. To overcome these problems an easy to use GIS/Remote Sensing user interface is developed (by Alterra and WaterWatch), called Irrigation Performance Assessment Tool (IPAT), in consultation with the end users. IPAT is successfully tested and demonstrated for three pilot areas in Argentina, Mexico and Ukraine. An economic analysis showed that the use of remote sensing data and IPAT can be very cost-effective. The report also gives shortcomings of formely BCRS projects
