Introduction

This website introduces our research into small-scale irrigation in Africa. We believe that there is a great deal of unrecognised potential in small-scale irrigation to boost productivity and economic growth. We recognise that this requires careful support in order to promote equitable and just outcomes, as well as more productive farming. Further background to this research is given in a discussion paper: using water for agric intensification

This site explains our purposes and outlines a proposed programme of research.
