Description

Irrigation is critical to Pakistan's food security, poverty reduction and economic development broadly and specifically for small to medium landholding farming families. Farmers believe that using more water on their crops results in higher yields. Farmers with small to medium holdings have had little access to technologies for irrigation, as affordable and accessible tools are neither produced nor widely distributed in Pakistan. A collaborative designing approach, trialing three adult learning models with women, youth and men and with focus on training some families in adult learning skills and techniques, will achieve scale-out of water technologies and tools.
