Region/Pays : Sahel (Burkina Faso, Niger, Mali, Senegal)

Secteur  : Agriculture

Date d’approbation : 03.06.2016

Description
This project covers the second phase of an on-going successful initiative aimed to scale up appropriate and tested small-scale irrigation technologies and introduce on-farm water management practices to smallholder farmers to increase agricultural productivity and food security in Burkina Faso, Niger, Mali, and Senegal. It will focus on expanding low cost and water-efficient irrigation technologies and addressing related constraints and limitations for large scale adoption by smallholder farmers. The project will target about 20,000 resource-poor smallholder farmers. It will also train about 40 project staff and 60 extension workers in each target country in the development, operation and maintenance of different SSI technologies. The Project has scaled up appropriate and tested small-scale irrigation technologies and introduced best on-farm best water and crop management practices to smallholder farmers in SSA to increase agricultural productivity and food security. The project also focused on introducing solar systems as a sustainable source of energy for irrigation pumps.
