Improving the evidence for targeting agricultural water management interventions in Ethiopia: a proof of concept Quick Water
The objectives of this project are to review, test and provide a package of outputs that together will better define areas of priority where gains in crop and livestock productivity to reduce poverty could be brought about in Ethiopia by increased water use efficiency, greater/better use of water storage structures and opportunities and constraints for interventions. Ongoing projects have addressed some of these issues for specific technologies / interventions but at a limited scales and geographic ranges. We will identify indicators that can be used to prioritize areas and the most appropriate combinations of AWM approaches. We aim to highlight these opportunities at a range of scales, bridging the gap between targeting of technologies at a smallholder level and out-scaling for administrative boundaries and basin planning scales.
