This technical paper describes the practical insights gathered from the application of a methodology that seeks to use the current context of a basin as the basis for setting more actionable and realistic water targets.This methodology is illustrated using a Colombian banana farmer which is part of the supply chain of the German supermarket chain Edeka. While the start of this work pre-dates some of the emerging global conversations with respect to Context-/Science-Based Targets for Water – there are some lessons that could be beneficial contributions to the methodology development of Context-/Science-Based Targets for Water.
