Toelichting


SamSamWater maakt informatie over water en sanitatie beschikbaar en toegankelijk voor iedereen.

Hierom hebben we een database opgezet, die via deze pagina geraadpleegd kan worden. De database bevat allerlei informatie, bijvoorbeeld 'best practices' (bewezen technieken), kaarten, geo-informatie en achtergrondinformatie. De informatie is afkomstig van verschillende bronnen, waaronder onderzoeksinstituten, bedrijven, organisaties en overheidsinstellingen.

Als u informatie heeft die wij in onze database kunnen opnemen, of als u opmerkingen of vragen heeft, dan horen wij dit graag!

N.B. De documenten en beschrijvingen op deze pagina zijn vooralsnog alleen beschikbaar in het Engels.

Drip Irrigation; Options for smallholder farmers in eastern and southern Africa


Isaya V. Sijali, Sida's Regional Land Management Unit (2001)

Smallholder farmers in the semi-arid regions of eastern and southern Africa have to depend on erratic, unreliable and low rainfall for their livelihoods. Subsistence staple food crops are generally grown under rainfed conditions. Consequently there is a growing interest in complementing this risky rainfed food production with cultivation of high-value vegetable crops and fruits. But in most cases this means these small-scale vegetable gardens and orchards must be irrigated in order to assure an economic return. Drip irrigation methods minimize the non-productive water losses associated with conventional irrigation, e.g. from evaporation and soil runoff, and thus can make more efficient use of the already minimal water supplies in these arid areas. But until recently drip irrigation technology had been associated with costly investments available only to large commercial farmers. Now there is growing interest in the technique and many efforts are being made around the world to develop low-cost, simple, drip irrigation systems suitable for smallholder farmers. This handbook presents some of these drip irrigation options that can be promoted by extension officers in eastern and southern Africa. It describes the most interesting small-scale low-cost drip irrigation methods of which the author and the other contributors have practical experience. It also gives a brief overview of methods that have been used successfully in other parts of the world with details of how to obtain further information about them or order equipment. (source)

Smart Water Solutions (English)


NWP, NWP (2006)

This booklet on water gives examples of innovations such as the use of sunlight to purify water, effective low-cost water filters, low-cost drip irrigation and locally prodcued hand pumps that are five times cheaper than imported pumps. By usiing these technologies, poor rural families can double or even triple their annual income. The book is designed as a source of inspiration, rather than a 'how to' manual. This publication is a collaborative effort by eight organisations: NWP (Netherlans Water Partnership), Practica, Simavi, IRC, Agromisa, NCDO, Aqua for All, Partners for Water. (source)
