[Day 4] Agricultural Water Management Project Overview

  1. 1. Agricultural Water Management (AWM) Landscape Analysis Assessing the feasibility and potential impacts of smallholder AWM interventions in SSA and SA Partners: IWMI, IFPRI, SEI, FAO, IDE, CH2M Hill
  2. 2. The opportunity • 40-80 billion US$ • Smallholder agricultural water management is a promising investment option to improve the livelihoods and food security of the rural poor
  3. 3. The challenge • Despite documented success stories adoption rates remain low. Adoption at large scale in a sustainable manner, and targeting poor (particularly women) remains a challenge. • Irrigation investments mixed success rate, particularly in SSA • Where to invest, how?
  4. 4. Project Goal To stimulate and support successful pro-poor, gender-equitable AWM investment, policy and implementation strategies through concrete, evidence-based knowledge and decision- making tools.
  5. 5. Three Key Outputs 1. Criteria, methodology and tools for selecting AWM interventions (technologies & approaches); 2. M&E Framework for evaluating economic, social and environmental impacts of AWM interventions; 3. National agricultural water management investments guides that offer AWM intervention guidance for donors, policy-makers and implementers Ethiopia, Ghana, Burkina, Zambia, Tanzania ; 2 states in India (MP, WB).
  6. 6. Project Impact Pathway Vision of Success: Livelihoods of 65 million Anticipated Impact poor women and men farmers in SSA and 15-20 years SA are significantly improved Target: Beneficiaries multiplied through broader uptake and financing of project Post Project Timeframe 5-10 years recommendations Target: Livelihoods of 1 million smallholder 5 years farmers enhanced in project’s priority locations Outcome: Measurable changes in AWM investment, policy and implementation strategies by the project’s boundary partners Direct Influence Outcome: Clear guidance from the project facilitates successful AWM policy, investment, and implementation strategies in the project’s priority locations Output: Results synthesized, packaged and communicated to policy makers, investors Project and implementers Completion Output: Cohesive set of AWM knowledge products and decision-making tools
  7. 7. Activity Schematic Outscaling and strategizing Learning from existing information Learning from field experiences /scenario development Synthesizing, disseminating and reaching out
  8. 8. Activity 1: inventory 1.1 Inventory of technologies and approaches on farm and community scale 1.2 Inventory of lesson learnt on watershed level impacts 1.3 Synthesis of literature and existing information Outputs • Inventory database • Documentation of lessons learnt • Report cards per technology
  9. 9. •analyze the technological, biophysical, social and institutional landscape in which AWM technologies operate •understand the opportunities, constraints and impacts of their use Activity 2: Constraint and opportunity analysis 2.1 Development of methodology for Rapid Participatory Opportunity and Constraint Analysis 2.2 Identification of field sites 2.3 Opportunity & constraint analysis at farm level: at least 20 sites 2.4 Opportunity & constraints analysis at community level: at least 30 sites
  10. 10. ctivity 2: Opportunity and Constraint analysis 2.5 Impacts at watershed level, 3 comprehensive watershed studies, nested approach 2.6 Adoption scenarios and environmental impacts at watershed level 2.7 Synthesis Outputs • Opportunity & constraints assessment tools / methodology at farm, community & watershed scale • Application of methodology at >20 farm sites, >30 small reservoirs, >3 watershed sites • Intervention briefs by technology & intervention approach
  11. 11. Activity 3: Scaling up, evaluating potential 3.1 Data Harmonization 3.2 Mapping biophysical & socio-economic opportunities & constraints 3.3 Mapping gender, Irrigation & crop control 3.4 Assessment of geographic suitability domains 3.5 Assessment of AWM potential and their impact
  12. 12. Activity 3: Scaling up, evaluating potential 3.6 AWM Impact – cost model Outputs • Data accessible through searchable web-portal • GIS based suitability domains • Maps & tables of potential impacts under different adoption scenarios • AWM investment cost-benefit analysis tool
  13. 13. Activity 4: AWM Strategic support 4.1 Distillation of the key messages 4.2 Project workshops (inception, midterm & synthesis) 4.3 Web-based data dissemination 4.4 Country policy dialogues 4.5 Dissemination to NGO’s and other implementing agencies
  14. 14. Activity 4: AWM Strategic support 4.6 Project Monitoring and Evaluation: internal and external M&E Outputs • Criteria for high potential areas, guidelines for AWM interventions, tools to estimate costs and benefits • Intervention briefs, journal articles, dissemination materials, website, blog
  15. 15. Three Key Outputs 1. Criteria, methodology and tools for selecting AWM interventions (technologies & approaches); 2. M&E Framework for evaluating economic, social and environmental impacts of AWM interventions; 3. National agricultural water management investments guides that offer AWM intervention guidance for donors, policy-makers and implementers
