  • 22. 3.2 Rain Water Harvesting Ponds • WHP at the HH is an important strategy to bridge water deficits and assist in addressing food insecurity • However, WHP must be implemented as per the standard and specification inorder to be effective • WHP had been constructed in Amhara Region long years ago, and it was implemented extensively in the years of 2000 to 2005 • Successful achievements had been made on some area & while failure was also observed on some other area
  • 23. WHP cont’d • The experience of GIZ-SLM in WHP was not extensive, however, recently WHP was given due emphasis • The WHP was implemented as per the standard taking into account the success and failure story from the past  Training has been given to partners in WHP  62 WHP was constructed in seven woreda (BMZ fund)  27 WHP was constructed in 12 woreda (GCCA)  The package include geomebrane, silt trap, inlet pipe, water lifting device and supposed to be combined with drip irrigation
  • 24. WHP under construction in Gozamin & Sinan woreda
  • 25. Proper construction of silt trap was a prerequisite for proper function of WHP Silt trap for WHP in Burie zuriya woreda
  • 26. 3.2 Drip Irrigation Drip Irrigation: the slow and regular application of water, directly to the root zone of plants, through the network of economically designed plastic pipes • More uniform and higher crop yields • More efficient use of available water • Reduced cost for fertilizer • Reduced labour costs
  • 27. The experience of GIZ-SLM in Drip Irrigation Major activities • Family drip kits were distributed  27 family drip kits to three project site on Arno, Garno & Gomit - SSI project  40 family drip kits to 12 woreda- GCCA-E  Family drip kit to 7 woreda – Neibell’s initiatives • Training has been given to farmers, DA, woreda & zonal expert by GIZ-SLM advisor and by Israel expert • Experience sharing visit was organized for farmers, DA and expert within and outside region as well as abroad
  • 28. Demonstration on SSI sites • Agronomic practices applied at the demonstration plots (e.g. fertilizer, improved variety of seeds) • Each plot was irrigated as per CWR and irrigation scheduling based on crop type, soil type and climate
  • 29. Family drip demonstration in Arno sites The best equipment & the most expensive irrigation system, will fail to provide successful irrigation if the IRR. Scheduling (when & how much to irrigate) is wrong
  • 30. Family drip demonstration in Gomit sites  .
  • 31. Drip irrigation and modified rope and washer pump
  • 32. Practical training on drip irrigation by Israel expert
  • 33. Experience sharing on farmer field day in Aron site
  • 34. 4. CHALLENGES Technical • Inadequate technical capacity at the field level for guiding farmers in proper Irrigation Water Management There is a general tendency by the farmers to over- irrigate as a result of their perception of CWR • Clogging of emitters the source of water used for drip irrigation in most of SSI sites either canal water from rivers or dams & the silt load cannot fully handled by the screen/disc filter of FDK • Siltation of WHP the WHP was constructed without silt trap or runoff was collected from untreated catchment
  • 35. Challenges Environmental • Decline the flow regime in contrary to an increase in demand of water from time to time the irrigated area in some of the scheme was stretched more than the capacity of water source This lead to an increase in irrigation interval This in turn make it difficult to irrigate vegetables and other crops which require short irrigation interval beside reducing the productivity of crop
  • 36. Environmental cont’d • Damage of plastic sheets (geo membrane) by rats • Spread of malaria in the stored water • Drip systems are also exposed to damage by rodents or other animals
  • 37. Challenges Institutional/ social/ • There is no protection and regular maintenance of implemented in situ soil moisture activities by land users • Destruction of in-situ moisture harvesting structures by livestock trampling and during farming operations • The WUA doesn’t have the required technical and financial capacity to govern the scheme properly • Farmers perceive that the area occupied by pond was large
  • 38. Challenges cont’d Economical • The initial cost of drip irrigation systems can be higher than other systems
  • 39. 5. RECCOMENDATION • Strong extension service should be given to the farmers on irrigation water mgt (CRW, IR & water application method) • Additional water source should be developed to supplement the scheme in a condition where the area irrigated was more than the capacity of the water source  constructing individual water storage at farm level  develop water well to tap shallow ground water • Operation & regulation practice of the existing system should be adjusted to accommodate new use/condition Increase irrigation hour, enforcing fee for water, try to avoid crop which require high water……
  • 40. Recommendation cont’d……. • WUA/cooperatives should be strengthened technically & financially to govern the scheme in a better way • Emphasis should be given to watershed management in order to improve the flow regime of the river/streams • Attention should be given to the quality while constructing WHP • Institutions responsible to deliver technical, financial and managerial support should be strengthened • Since drip irrigation is not familiar to most of farmers, capacity building activities should be done before the implementation
  • 41. Every drop counts! More crop per drop! Thank you
