    Kenya: irrigation market brief 2015
    Also available in:

    Achieving Africa’s agricultural growth potential will require a significant increase in historically low levels of productivity. This is an area where irrigation can play a critical role. Modern, efficient irrigation systems can substantially increase crop yields, resulting in improved livelihoods, reduced risk associated with drought, efficient use of limited water resources, and greater food production. This report is the fourth in a series of market briefs produced jointly by the IFC and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It is targeted primarily at private sector investors and companies interested in expanding investment in irrigation in Sub-Saharan Africa, with particular focus on modern irrigation technologies, but may be of wider interest to all stakeholders engaged in irrigation development in the country. The report assesses the current state of the irrigation market in Kenya, recent performance, and opportunities for future growth.

    The future of large rice-based irrigation systems in Southeast Asia 2007
    Also available in:

    Most of the large rice irrigation systems in Southeast Asia have been designed for rice irrigation under a supply-driven mode. Despite their huge contribution to agricultural production, there is a general consensus that these large rice irrigation systems have not lived up to expectations because of a legacy of poor institutional arrangements and system design, degraded infrastructure, poor management and stagnation in the face of rapid transformations of agriculture and pressures on their wate r supply. To respond to these shortcomings and to meet new challenges, multiple options and systematic approaches are needed in terms of strategy, institutions, financing, technology and international cooperation to transform large rice irrigation systems in Southeast Asia from supply-driven to demand-driven responsive systems, to improve their water service in terms of reliability, equity, flexibility and multiple uses, to enable farmers to boost agricultural and water productivity, to be more responsive to market opportunities and to contribute to environmental sustainability. Convened in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam from 26 to 28 October 2005, this workshop discussed three critical questions whose answers could determine the way that large rice-based irrigation systems will evolve over the next 20 to 25 years, namely: how will agriculture and rice production evolve in Southeast Asia? What changes will be required in irrigation service provision by the large rice-based irrigation syste ms? How will ongoing and expected reforms and investment programmes measure up against the projected needs of the region? This proceedings is a collection of the workshop papers and outcomes. It offers a useful reference work to professionals, researchers and government decision-makers on sustainable agriculture, water management and irrigation modernization.
