Poster prepared by Catherine Pfeifer, An Notenbaert and Carlos Quiros for the ILRI@40 Workshop, Addis Ababa, 7 November 2014.

Most of the agriculture in the Ethiopian part of the Nile Basin depends is rain-fed. Its low productivity can be explained to a large extend by the lack of appropriate rainwater management.

Promoting rainwater management practices in Ethiopia is not new, however they have been promoted :
regardless of the bio-physical and socio-economic context without considering local expertise without accounting for synergies between rainwater management practices at landscape scale

Nile-Goblet software: Mapping rainwater management strategies made easy for stakeholders

  1. 1. Challenge Response Nile –Goblet is an open source so2ware that creates suitability maps for any given technology, and has been programed for rainwater management prac<ces in the Nile Basin 1. Defini<on of suitability is fully expert driven, i.e. expert define themselves which maps have to be used and their relevant suitability range. (Step A & B below) 2. it includes the most accurate bio-­‐physical map available for the Nile Basin to represent the bio-­‐physical context, allowing for accurate bio-­‐physical suitability maps 3. it contains “adop<on maps” : these maps show the probability of adop<on based on micro-­‐economic data for classes of rainwater management prac<ces to account for the socio-­‐economic context 4. It has a module to show combina<on of rainwater management prac<ces referred to as strategies that enable synergies at landscape scale Nile-­‐Goblet so,ware mapping rainwater management strategies made easy for stakeholders Catherine Pfeifer, An Notenbaert, Carlos Quiros Most of the agriculture in the Ethiopian part of the Nile Basin depends is rain-­‐fed.
