AgWater Solutions Project


Titre : AgWater Solutions Project

Pays : Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Zambia, and India

Durée  : 3-years, January 2009 - December 2011

This project aims to help understand the factors that influence adoption and successful outscaling of these technologies-from the natural resource base to credit and land tenure systems, markets, communication networks and the broader policy environment.
The result of the project will be a set of science-backed tools and recommendations that can be used by : •policymakers to develop policies and institutions that will encourage strategic public and private investments in small-scale agriculture to reduce poverty, hunger, and vulnerability to climate change ; •donors to better target support ; government agencies and NGOs working in agriculture, water and rural development to more effectively and sustainably design and implement programs ; and •rural communities and small-scale farmers, women as well as men, to select and adopt the most suitable agricultural water management technologies and practices.

The project is organized around four broad activities aimed at :
* Learning from literature (farm/community/watershed level)
* Learning from field experiences (at farm/community level)
* Learning through ex-post evaluation of interventions and ex-ante scenario development (at watershed level)
* Outscaling and strategizing (country & regional level)
* Synthesizing, disseminating and reaching out (generic findings)

The project team is comprised of research, policy and implementation organizations—namely, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI, project lead), the International FoodPolicy Research Institute (IFPRI), the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Development Enterprises (IDE), and CH2M HILL Inc. —supported by a project Steering Committee.
