Water-Smart Agriculture in East Africa
The Sourcebook on Water-Smart Agriculture in East Africa is a collection of case studies from soil conservation to building resilience, including farmers’ own innovative practices, that further develop this particular approach in East Africa aimed at a specific group of users- development managers, educators, local administrators and policy makers. These are the people who can utilize such practical research outputs, thereby enabling impact at scale at both local and national levels.
The Sourcebook on Water-Smart Agriculture in East Africa will be officially launched at the 7th World Water Forum in Gyeongu, Korea on April 14, 2015 from 1.30-2.30 p.m at the B2F Dynasty Room of the Hotel Hyundai.
