This document on the International Programme for Technology and Research in Irrigation and Drainage (IPTRID), is designed for governments and policy-makers. The Programme facilitated and organized missions to study and document the status of drainage and capacity building needs in eight countries in the region: Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia. IPTRID conducted a regional workshop on this subject in Cairo on 2001. This publication describes the proceedings of that workshop and contains the technical papers presented by resource persons and country participants, as well as the country assessments.

This booklet is a useful tool for planners, farmers, educators on rural development. It provides basic and practical information on multiple-use smallholder farm ponds. Ponds add value to farming activities: water from ponds can serve domestic and livestock water supplies as well as irrigation for crops. They can also be used to raising fish which adds value to the water and provides improved nutrition for farm families. The booklet suggests ways by which smallholder farmers can participate in the market economy through better market access and outlines strategies to attract the private sector to do business with smallholders.

FARMER FIELD SCHOOLS ON LAND AND WATER MANAGEMENT IN AFRICA

levels and types of education: Teachers' training               
FAO _
FAO, ROME, 2008

English
This guide is targeted to extension workers and educators on rural development. This guide illustrates the process and the steeps to built a farmer field schools – an innovative approach to adult education to improve land and water management in Africa. Unlike traditional approaches to agricultural extension, which rely on extension workers providing advice to farmers, farmer field schools enable groups of farmers to find out the answers for themselves. That means the farmers can develop solutions to their own problems. The extension worker is a facilitator who guides the learning process, rather than a technical specialist who disseminates information.

The aim of this guide is to help field assistants and development officers, to promote, encourage and support individuals and groups of smallholders to gain the benefits of irrigated agriculture. The material included in the Field Guide deals with the most commonly occurring situations (crops, size of land holdings, etc.) facing smallholders who may be unfamiliar with irrigated cultivation. The material has been purposefully simplified to provide answers to the most commonly asked questions.

IRRIGATION SECTOR GUIDE        
subjects:  Gender     Water         
levels and types of education: Secondary and vocational education              
JORDANS EVA
FAO, ROME, 2001
___________________________________________________________________________________________________
English
This Guide is written for the people who are involved in the planning, design and implementation of irrigation programmes. It is therefore intended for irrigation engineers, members of multidisciplinary identification and formulation missions, staff of rural development projects, government employees, staff of NGOs, and engineering and consulting firms. This document is a guide to the integration of socio-economic and gender issues in the sub-sector irrigation. The Guide has been developed in the context of the FAO Socioeconomic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Programme. SEAGA is an approach to development based on an analysis of socio-economic patterns and participatory identification of women and men’s priorities. The objective of this approach is to close the gaps between what people need and what development delivers. By placing socioeconomic analysis and gender analysis together, SEAGA helps us learn about community dynamics, including the linkages among social, economic and environmental patterns. The purpose of the SEAGA Sector Guide on Irrigation is to support gender-responsive participatory planning of irrigation schemes, and to integrate socio-economic and gender issues in the planning process. The ultimate aim is to improve irrigation scheme performance while strengthening the position of rural women and disadvantaged groups.

This is a website which contains a package of training material for the development and implementation of a Participatory Training & Extension Programme in Farmers' Water Management. The two main documents are The Guidelines and Farmers' Training Manual for PT&E-FWM. Besides this, the training package contains a collection of various documents and audiovisual materials to help in the development and implementation of training programmes for farmers and field staff in order to facilitate the introduction of appropriate water control technologies and better water management techniques. Participatory Training and Extension (PT&E) has proved to be an effective tool to establish the appropriate support structure to assist and advise farmers in irrigation development and management. PT&E is in particular useful for small holder irrigation and in the case of irrigation management transfer programmes. Farmers Water Management (FWM) refers to all water control techniques, technologies and related activities under the direct control and responsibility of farmers. FWM is carried out on an individual basis, by each farmer on his/her own field and farm as well as by a group of farmers, who jointly manage a hydraulic unit and share water from the same source.
