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.
