Solar-powered irrigation could boost climate resilience of millions
The impacts of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa are severe and have far-reaching consequences for millions of smallholder farmers. Rising temperatures, destructive locust swarms, and increasingly erratic rainfall make it difficult for farmers to grow food and meet basic needs.
Expanding small scale irrigation is emerging as part of the solution. For this year’s World Water Day, we take a closer look at what it will take for even more farmers to get started.
