Technical Guidance

This technical report focuses on Koga, in Ethiopia, and describes the process of developing, designing, piloting, and evaluating potential solutions to increase water productivity sustainably. As irrigated areas expand, more attention must be paid to on-farm water management so as to allow for optimal use and distribution of water resources. Using WAter Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR), this report characterizes the status of water use and productivity in the Koga irrigation scheme. The report also uses the data to measure the changes occurring after the implementation of low-cost tools and irrigation practices so as to increase yield and reduce the water consumed or applied during the irrigation season.
