Abstract Agricultural Water Demand Management (AWDM) is at the core of the Water for Food Programme launched as a result of a pledge by the Netherlands' Minister for Agriculture at the 2nd World Water Forum in March 2000, The Hague. One of the projects that was started after the March 2000 pledge was Workshops Capacity Building for Agricultural Water Demand Management, with as objective Capacity building for management of agricultural water demand both in institutions in India and Vietnam, as well as in Wageningen UR, through two workshops in which the participating institutions identify needs and formulate project proposals. As part of this project, a three-day workshop was held in the State of Andhra Pradesh, India, with as objective to assess the role research and educational institutes play in interacting with policy makers, government departments and water users to ensure the sustainable use of water by the agricultural sector (the Partners for Water Programme management decided that the planned workshop in Vietnam should not be funded by the programm). The Project has greatly contributed to: (i) Awareness raising on the issue of Agricultural Water Demand Management in Andhra Pradesh; (ii) An assessment of the present situation in the capacity building for Agricultural Water Demand Management in Andhra Pradesh; (iii) A project proposal to address the identified gaps in knowledge and capacity building, building on the AP demand and the existing (and appreciated) bilateral co-operation.
