      Irrigation development involves various stakeholders. Stakeholders not only those who initiate, implement and benefit from irrigation schemes, but also those who are directly or indirectly affected by such schemes. Nevertheless, the most essential stakeholder is the farmer, who, if not properly integrated in the scheme development,File Size: KB.

      The book provides field evidence from a diversity of interdisciplinary case studies in sub-Saharan Africa, the Mediterranean, Latin America, and South Asia, thus revealing some of the untold stories of drip cturer: Routledge. Thus, the potential of irrigation development for Africa, in particular for Sub-Saharan Africa, is large, given existing water resources, the high value of irrigated agriculture on the continent, and the large number of rural poor that could benefit from productivity enhancement as a result of irrigation by:

        Idea: The Hippo water roller is a drum that can be rolled on the ground, making it easier for those without access to taps to haul larger amounts of water faster. Problem: Two out of every five people in Africa have no nearby water facilities and are forced to walk long distances to reach water sources. iv AFRICA AGRICULTURE STATUS REPORT Foreword This year’s Africa Agriculture Status Report (AASR) is particularly close to my heart, as it speaks to an issue that I have passionately advocated for all my professional life. As I indicated in my recently released book, A Bucket of Water, when I insisted for many years that small-scale farms.

Although irrigation in Africa has the potential to boost agricultural productivities by at least 50 percent, food production on the continent is almost entirely rainfed.

The area equipped for irrigation, currently slightly more than 13 million hectares, makes up. Central America, Mexico, and Sub-Saharan Africa, primarily in tropical-humid zones.

Owing to their wetness, such zones must first be drained. Irrigation can come later, as a supple­ ment. Drainage must, however, be carried out with caution so as to reconcile the conflicting demands of agriculture, urban development, transport, and ecosystems.

To deal with future food supplies, the development of irrigation system is high on the political agenda. In-ternational Water Institute (IWMI), estimates that 29 percent more irrigated land will be re-quired by the year (Rijsberman, ).
