Brussels Briefing n. 56: Sir Gordon Conway "Sustainable agriculture and the water–energy–food nexus"

  1. 1. Professor Sir Gordon Conway Brussels, 3 July 2019www.mamopanel.org MALABO MONTPELLIER PANEL Water-Wise: Smart irrigation strategies for Africa
  2. 2. Irrigation is crucial for Africa’s Food Production The amount of irrigation in Africa is very small. Higher yields depend on irrigation. There is plenty of water in Africa but it has to be harnessed It can be large scale or small scale But it has to be smart and ingenious That means being used Precisely and Sustainably with Resilience
  3. 3. The Rivers of Africa – There is plenty of water
  4. 4. Current Irrigation Uptake and Potential
  5. 5. Climate change in Africa – we need more water just to stay put By 2050, yields of rain-fed maize will decline by as much as 25% or more. Sorghum and millet yields to decline by more than 30% and 40% Wheat production likely to disappear from Africa by the 2080s. Semi-arid lands will become more marginal in the Sahel. Crop net revenues likely to fall by as much as 90% by 2100 in South Africa.
  6. 6. The potential benefits of irrigation in Africa Women’s empowerment Climate risk reduction Job creation Increased agricultural productivity
  7. 7. Current Irrigation Uptake and Potential Irrigation can make business sense: yields from irrigated crops are twice or more in comparison to rain- fed yields The potential to increase irrigation in Africa is 47 million ha. In SSA, irrigated land could be expanded to 38 million ha, from the current 7.7 million.
  8. 8. Opportunities for Innovation in Irrigation Traditional irrigation methods Innovative irrigation technologies Small-scale irrigation Community-led irrigation Rope-and-bucket River diversion Gravity-fed drip irrigation Rope-and-washer Tidal irrigation Center-pivot Hip pump Floppy Sprinkler Treadle pump Soil sensor Motorized pump Hyperspectral camera Solar pump Photos by: NECOFA, Kenya; David Stanley; BBC 2009; Neil Palmer, CIAT
  9. 9. Overcoming Barriers to Irrigation Uptake Infrastructure and technologies Skill development Land tenure Access to finance Returns on investments Integrated approaches Access to finance Hiring services PPPs Multiple-use water systems (MUS) The Green Climate Fund (GCF) The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP)
