Best Practices and Technologies for Small Scale Agricultural Water Management in Ethiopia
Abesha, D., et al
Proceedings of a MoARD / MoWR / USAID / IWMI Symposium and Exhibition held at Ghion Hotel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 7-9 March, 2006
The Program addresses key questions such as: what is the reason for limited technology access in terms of agricultural water management? Why promising technologies have not scaled up? What can be done for scaling up? What are the policies and institutional support conditions needing attention for scaling up? How does the private sector strongly involve in the sub-sector? What are the best implementation strategies? Based on these key questions, the objectives of the symposium are:
- To bring together and share experiences among farmers, government (policy makers, technical experts), NGOs, private sector (small holder and commercial farmers, producers/distributors of technologies for water management and irrigation), international donors and financial institutions and related stake holders that are working around small scale irrigation (SSI), rain water harvesting (RWH) and micro irrigation (MI) technologies;
- To review past and current practice of rain water harvesting, micro irrigation and small scale irrigation technology usage in Ethiopia;
- To carry out focused discussion to explore opportunities and mechanisms through which the uptake of knowledge, application, dissemination and out scaling of SSI, MI and RWH technologies could be enhanced.
