More effective and sustainable investments in water for poverty reduction






Water management by smallholders, including all forms of informal irrigation, private, water farming, fishing, etc, has a significant potential for development which is still largely untapped. This project funded by IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development) and implemented by FAO and IWMI is an opportunity to understand the conditions of success for the development of all forms of small-scale agricultural water management and to improve the efficiency and performance of the devel opment projects.

The project is implemented in Madagascar, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Niger and Mali with the participation of the ministries of agriculture of those countries. It aims to further inform on more appropriate investments in irrigation.

The project focuses on the exchange of experiences between countries, both in the technological field and know-how, in order to promote innovation.

    The project aims at improving food security and reducing rural poverty of smallholder farmers through providing guidance and technical support to enhance the quality, impact and sustainability of Agricultural Water Management (AWM) investments. Water is crucial to economies and to livelihoods and is central for poverty reduction. Sufficient availability and reliable access to water is commonly a constraint, not only to food production, but also to social and economic development and sustainabili ty. Water plays a pivotal role around which other interventions can be organized. Therefore, improving investments in AWM to support smallholders’ livelihoods is a priority in rural areas.
