Opportunities for improved agricultural productivity through irrigation development continue to unfold in Tanzania (i.e. through Plans and Programmes). Irrigation potential is 29.4 million ha and the development target is to reach 1.0 million ha with improved irrigation infrastructure by 2025.
This workshop presented and discussed the results of the Studying African Farmer-led Irrigation (SAFI) and Assessing Models of Public Private Partnerships for Irrigation Development in Africa (AMPPPIDA) projects’ research on irrigated agriculture in Tanzania, and explored what this research tells us about the potential for irrigation investment by government and private sector, including smallholder producers, and public-private partnerships (PPPs).
