The Spate Irrigation Network aims to improve the livelihoods of those living in the spate irrigated areas. It exchanges experiences and good practices, initiates and supports new programs and policies, and mainstreams education and training.
The network consists of professionals, practitioners and farmers. At present the network has more than 400 members. It is being run with a small part time international secretariat (at MetaMeta and UNESCO-IHE) whereas in four countries national chapters are being set up: in Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan and Ethiopia, though activities are not confined to these countries.
The Spate Irrigation Network is currently supported by IFAD, World Bank/EKN, UNW-DPC, UNESCO-IHE/DUPC and FAO. To join the Spate Irrigation Network, which is free of charge, subscribe here! Read more in the brochure or contact us for more information.
