      Water use decreased as the frequency of irrigation events were reduced in more than 50% of the households. Interval between irrigation events increased by to 9 days; Improved off-farm income was reported by nearly 50% households with income sources changing from 11% to 66%. There is more spending on farming inputs, food and the home. Nature and Role of Water Institutions — Implications to Irrigation Water Management in Zimbabwe. By K. Nhundu, A. Mushunje and F. Aghdasi.

      The National Water Resources Management Strategy – (NWRMS) The Ministry of Water & Irrigation i Foreword Water is an important natural resource to all forms of life and their existence; for mankind, it is the backbone of growth and prosperity The growing demands for it against the limited temporal natural. The overall water management in the region is assessed, and recent trends in investments in the water sector, with a focus on large-scale irrigation systems, are analyzed. The paper concludes that in this context of accelerating demand and declining irrigation investments, new water development is not the primary solution to water resource.

This interdisciplinary volume brings together current issues in and approaches to the development, utilization, and management of water resources in developing countries. The contributors, who have had extensive research and work experience in such countries, analyze these irrigation issues in the c.

The research was partially supported by the African Development Bank as part of the project entitled Inventory of Smallholder Productivity and Evaluation of Low-Cost Precision Irrigation Techniques in Southern and Eastern Africa, and by SWIM.

irrigation remains a faster and feasible solution, water availability for irrigation in the country is scarce. Kenya has four main drainage areas namely: Lake Victoria, Kerio Valley and Inland lakes, the Tana and Athi River basin, and the Ewaso Ng’iro North basin whose irrigation infrastructure has not been adequately developed.

A new World Bank Group paper on climate change and water resources planning, development and management in Zimbabwe, requested by the government, reviews the broad links between climate and the hydrological cycle and water management and case studies from cities, irrigation and hydropower projects and recommends a range of adaptation.

These arrangements stem from the Water Act of and the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) Act of For the purposes of managing the.

management will be enhanced through the implementation of water storage, water transfer and hydropower infrastructure required for agriculture, agro-processing, tourism and forestry projects. irrigation development is possible with the country’s available water resources.

The Vision has a much more ambitious target: million ha of irrigation development by Figure 2 provides only a snapshot.

It downplays the extent of dry season water stress in Kenya, as the figures are based. The Irrigation Strategy seeks to support irrigation initiatives based on revitalisation of irrigation schemes, development of new irrigation schemes, as well as management and efficient use of water for irrigation purposes.

In general, irrigation in Kenya accounts for only per cent of total land area under agricultural production, but it was approximated to be directly providing 18 per cent, contributing 3 per cent to Kenya’s GDP (Government of Kenya, ).

As reported in the agriculture sector development strategy (ASDS) of toirrigation. tional Development Agency, aimed at strengthening the capacity of farmers to adapt to climate change through land and water management among rural communities in three countries of Eastern Africa- Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.

It focuses on the household level, where most adaptation and coping strategies are implemented. Each page of the book provides basic water and sanitation advice, such as the importance of keeping contaminants like rubbish and faeces away from water, often unknown in developing countries.
