More effective and sustainable investments in water for poverty reduction


An important outcome of the project is to develop new models of planning and implementing agricultural water management investments, recognizing the diversity and complexity of the country contexts and tailoring interventions to rural population priorities and livelihood strategies. Any rural water development strategy needs to deal with diversified livelihood systems with limited capacities for agricultural investment and a predominance of risk-avoiding strategies.

The project is currently developed in six African countries: Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mali, Niger, Rwanda and Tanzania.
