Enabling resilient, equitable smallholder farming systems through improved agricultural land and water management (ALWM)

  1. 1. Enabling resilient, equitable smallholder farming systems through improved agricultural land and water management (ALWM)
  2. 2. Smallholder ALWM: A vibrant and growing sector Smallholder farmers are increasingly initiating and financing small-scale land and water management technologies themselves, e.g.: • In India > 50% of the irrigated area watered by smallholder pumps. • In much of Africa, smallholder AWM reaches more farmers than public irrigation. Farmers’ reliance on different types of irrigation in Ghana
  3. 3. Smallholder ALWM: Potential to impact millions Source: Adapted from Giordano et al. 2012
  4. 4. Livelihood benefits: Employment, empowerment and labor saving opportunities Irrigation Service Providers: Local entrepreneur owns 1+ pumps. Paid per hour for irrigation. Potential Benefits: • Incomes for entrepreneurs • Income from dry season crops for farmers Conservation agriculture for home gardens: Conservation agriculture (mulching, low till, drip irrigation) in home gardens can: • Save labor, water • Improve yield quantity and quality • Empower women
  5. 5. Nutrition outcomes: Improved food security and dietary quality • In general, irrigators perform better than non-irrigators in terms of household food security and dietary diversity • Irrigation significantly improves both household income and production diversity • Increasing household income leads to higher dietary diversity
  6. 6. The opportunity • India has 130,000 GW of installed pumping capacity in the form of electric and diesel tube wells • Sustainable solar irrigation pumps with feed-in tariff for selling excess electricity to the grid Triple wins • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions • Sustainable use of groundwater • Higher incomes for farmers Improving productivity and livelihoods through smart solar irrigation The result • Launch of the world’s first Solar Pump Irrigation Cooperative (SPICE) • Potential to solarize 100 million 10kW grid-connected irrigation pumps generating 150mkWh green energy Climate resilience: Smart solar solutions
  7. 7. Opportunities to further enhance ALWM benefits and beneficiaries • Improve access to information, financing and control over ALWM assets and inputs • Better target technologies to meet women’s preferences • Identify opportunities to reduce labor requirements in ALWM • Increase the ‘voice’ of women in ALWM discussions and decision- making • Further understand which ALWM interventions fit different climate change profiles Female farmer in Ethiopia learning to use irrigation scheduling tools.
