Doc type: PDF

Size: 1.2MB

Wheat is a major staple crop for many African countries and 60% of the consumption is imported leading to significant demand and supply gap although there is a great potential to produce the crop locally. Wheat Compact aims at achieving transformational impact and sustainable increases in productivity and production for enhanced food security, economic growth, and poverty alleviation and reduce unsustainable overdependence on imports in target countries.

The case of Water Management Technology

Irrigation is creating resilience among rural population, especially in fragile regions with low rainfall to increases profitability of agriculture. In addition, it is attractive to the youth farmers and service providers and creates high-end technical jobs. The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) led Water Enabler Compact (TAAT- WEC) stands uniquely as a pillar for meeting water needs in crop production systems to boost crop productivity and income. It focuses mainly on irrigation and water management technologies that will help small-scale farmers increase sustainable agricultural production and income
