Summary

The project was developed to test a specific combination of technical and institutional change methods to increase irrigation water productivity and profitability in African smallholder irrigation schemes. This combination of ‘Tools + Agricultural Innovation Platforms’ (TAIP) has positive synergies that were found capable of reinvigorating failing irrigation schemes.
