Programme called Sustainable Agri-Tech Development in Arid and Semi-arid areas (SATDAS). The programme aims in creating Sustainable Agriculture and Technology Development system that would be used in Arid and Semi-Arid areas in Kenya and other Sub-Saharan countries in Africa. SATDAS will be characterized by intensive research and development of innovative systems, rooted in the need to overcome local scarcities of water and arable land. The industry’s growth will arise from the close cooperation among researchers, governments, extension agents, farmers and agriculture-related industries, cooperative efforts. These in turn will fostered a market-oriented agribusiness that will exports its agro technology solutions worldwide. The result will be a modern agricultural methods, systems and products in a county (ies) where more than half the area is desert. The programme aims to optimize and use dry areas in production of agricultural products.
This programme is not only beneficial in terms of increased food production but also production of water to the community (ies) and renewable energy(ies) (i.e. solar system energy that uses an energy source (the sun)) that is consistently available especially in arid and semi-arid areas. It will be a clean source of energy and will not do any damage to the environment and to the nature. Furthermore it will last forever since it uses renewable energy.
