Modern technology and sustainable irrigation of small scale dry-land farming in Kitui county, Kenya. The Purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of technology on sustainable irrigation of small scale dry land farming in Kitui Central District, Kitui County, Kenya. The study sought to establish the extent to which adoption of new irrigation technology, gravity free flow irrigation and access to access to credit has influenced sustainable irrigation of small scale dry land farming. Descriptive survey research design was adopted.Venzi_Modern technology and sustainable irrigation of small scale dry-land farming in Kitui county, Kenya

  8. The Malabo Montpellier Panel. WATER-WISE:Smart Irrigation Strategies for Africa.The Malabo Montpellier Panel’s report, Water-Wise: Smart Irrigation Strategies for Africa, summarizes the key findings of a systematic analysis of what six African countries – Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Niger and South Africa – at the forefront of progress on irrigation have done right. The report has identified a set of policies and practices which, if brought to scale, could significantly improve the resilience and livelihoods of rural communities and spur overall agricultural growth and transformation in Af By adapting these lessons to countries’ specific contexts and scaling them up across the continent, African governments can meet their national and international commitments to agricultural growth and transformation.   WaterWise_Smart_Irrigation_Strategies_for_Africa

  9. The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Irrigation (MoALF) has developed the Agricultural Sector Growth and Transformation Strategy (ASTGS) drawn from nine flagship that serve as the core of 10-year strategy. These flagships draw on the status of agriculture today, a rigorous and thorough review of data, lessons from global best practices, and local realities. The actions inherent in these flagships are bold and ambitious. They will help to transform the agriculture sector in Kenya, drive 100% food and nutrition security, and ensure food is affordable, especially for those most in need. The strategy details the flagship projects prioritized for implementation in the first five years. AGRICULTURAL-SECTOR-TRANSFORMATION-and-GROWTH-STRATEGY

  10. This publication gives guidelines on how to initiate, develop and sustain Irrigation Acceleration Platforms (IAPs). They are for hosts and facilitators of IAPs as well as organizations interested in playing an active role in an IAP. Many others involved in promoting inclusive innovation processes and stakeholder collaboration in agricultural development may find them of interest too. These guidelines are based on several streams of experiences in Kenya as well as elsewhere. IAP Guidelines

  11. The Association of Irrigation Acceleration Platform (AIAP) convened a stakeholder workshop which was held in Nairobi at the Hotel Intercontinental, on Thursday, 6th December 2018. The stakeholders included; policy makers, researchers, private sector actors, financial institutions, development partners, tech companies, NGOs and service providers. The workshop was designed to share knowledge and build partnerships for working together in harmony and thus facilitate contribute towards infusing science, technology and innovation in irrigation and for achievement of the Big Four Agenda, focusing on the pillar of Food and Nutrition Security. The theme of the was Workshop: “Partnerships for scaling-up smart water solutions for irrigation, as an enabler of the Big Four Agenda on Food and Nutrition Security in Kenya”.NIAP Consultative Workshop report-24th -01-2019

  12. The one-day workshop organized by the SNV in collaboration with the Water Research and Resource Center (WARREC) of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) convened key financial institutions, market off-takers, government officials and impact investing stakeholders to share experiences and lessons learned on solar pump irrigation in Kenya. Masterclass – “SWA Learning and Field Experiences of Solar Pump Usage by Smallholder Farmers” Report

  13. WARREC and SNV organized a workshop “Promoting Farmer-led and

    Market based Smart Water Solutions for improving smallholder irrigation in Kenya”. The workshop brought out the key developments in the smallholder irrigation sector and challenges faced by the different stakeholders in upscaling Smart Water Solutions (SWS) in Kenya. Masterclass Report Finance

  14. The Finance working group is a collection of people /organization who come together to engaged from time to time to brainstorm, formulate, give feedback, give insights and own a process that requires their particular expertise or time and explore more on Smart Finance for Smart Water Solutions. The finance working group workshop dubbed Exploring Innovative finance models to scale Smart Water Solutions was held on Friday 28th September 2018. The objective of this workshop was to brainstorm over the proposed working financial models during the master class and also look at some working financial models with the aim of creating or adopting a financial model that is suitable and scalable, with this working group.  Financial-Working-Group-Report AGRICULTURAL-SECTOR-TRANSFORMATION-and-GROWTH-STRATEGY

  15. The main aim of the workshop was to review the need for a Association of Irrigation Acceleration Platform and its agenda and reach agreement on main topics and activities that would help accelerate farmer-led irrigation development in Kenya, while generating interest and commitment from all stakeholders.
