The Spate Irrigation Network was established in 2004 and transformed into the Spate Irrigation Network Foundation in 2014.
The mission of the Spate Irrigation Network Foundation is to promote stability and socio-economic development in areas that are dependent on flood based farming. These areas are in most cases among the poorest in the countries where they are situated and in many cases are areas where insecurity is high.
The Spate Irrigation Network Foundation aims to strengthen the networks of farmers and other stakeholders in flood based spate irrigation areas and to support and help implement programs on exchanging good economic and social practices and settling issues of water distribution and conflict mitigation.
