Analyzing the Enabling Environment to Enhance the Scaling of Irrigation and Water Management Technologies: A Tool for Implementers
Pages: 22
Doc type: PDF
Size: 3.18MB

Agricultural innovation scaling approaches tend to be empirical but do not sufficiently take into account the complex realities of ‘softer elements’ such as people, supply chains, markets, financing mechanisms, policies and regulations, professional knowledge, power relations, incentives and history. As a consequence, scaling initiatives often do not produce the desired impacts and, in some instances, may even produce undesirable impacts.

The Program Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) is funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) to increase productivity in Africa through the deployment of technologies with proven and high performance. It originated from the need “to execute a bold plan to achieve rapid
agricultural transformation across Africa through raising agricultural productivity” that was declared by participants in the Dakar High-Level Conference, October 2015. It led to the formulation of Feed Africa: A Strategy for African Agricultural Transformation by the AfDB in June 2016.

The case of Cassava Weed Management Technology
Pages: 9
Doc type: PDF
Size: 1.8MB

The Cassava Compact is led by IITA with a partnership in 12 countries (Benin, Togo, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, DR Congo, Cameroon, Rwanda, South Sudan, Zambia and Burundi). As cassava is suited to a wide range of climatic conditions, its toolkit approach varies across agro-ecological zones. The Cassava value chain compact aims to shift Africa towards a sustainable cassava transformation by increasing production, productivity, promoting mechanization, value addition, strengthening market linkage and catalyzing investment in the sector.

The case of High Iron Beans Technology

High Iron Beans is one of the commodity value chains supported under TAAT. The HIB Value Chain compact aims at increasing the HIB productivity from 0.8 to 1.2 MT/ha for bush beans and 1.5 to 2.5 MT/ha for climbing beans, produce additional 800,000 MT of HIB in target countries, create access to seed, growing and consuming HIB for 2 million households. Besides increasing productivity and creating access to seeds, the project using the “Commodity Corridor Approach” works at enhancing business opportunities and investments for the youth…

The Rice Compact of TAAT is paving the way for rice transformation in sub-Saharan Africa by promoting locally-adapted high-yielding rice varieties and hybrids developed by the Africa Rice Center. Due to low productivity in Sub-Sahara Africa, rice consumption outstrips production; for example in 2018, whiles 32.925 million metric tons of rice was consumed in the region, ongly 18.628 million tons of milled rice was produced. This indicated that there was 42% production-consumption gap and to fill the demand-supply gap, 13.985 million…

Irrigation is creating resilience among rural population, especially in fragile regions with low rainfall to increases profitability of agriculture. In addition, it is attractive to the youth farmers and service providers and creates high-end technical jobs. The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) led Water Enabler Compact (TAAT- WEC) stands uniquely as a pillar for meeting water needs in crop production systems to boost crop productivity and income. It focuses mainly on irrigation and water management technologies that will help small-scale farmers increase sustainable agricultural production and income
