NEW – Micro-irrigation for food security

Scaling-up of Micro Irrigation Systems (SCAMPIS) implemented between 2009-2012, and aimed to increase farm productivity to create surpluses for local consumption and markets. Through a focus on financial support mechanisms and supply-chain capacity building, the project engaged with 8 800 households in the adoption of Micro-Irrigation technology across five districts in Madagascar. Uptake of the Micro Irrigation Systems (MIS) led to a 41% increase in agricultural productivity and a 69% reduction in water abstraction.
