Addis Ababa, 23rd February 2016

The AFRHINET project would like to inform you about the 4th International Networking, Dissemination and Round Table Event in Addis Ababa, whose theme is “Fostering food security, Poverty alleviation and Climate resilience  through Rainwater-Smart Agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa”. The event will take place on 23rd February 2016, as a parallel session of the International Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa, which is also organised by HAW Hamburg (Germany) in cooperation with Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia).  The AFRHINET workshop will be attended by more than 70 relevant international stakeholders from all over the world (Ethiopia, Germany, Italy, Kenya, Mozambique, Sudan, US, Zimbabwe, South Africa, etc.).

 
The specific objectives of the event are as it follows:
 
  1. To provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, governments and enterprises from sub-Saharan Africa with a special focus on Ethiopia with an opportunity to display and present their works in this field of knowledge
  2. To foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of rainwater-smart projects, especially successful initiatives and best-practices practices across sub-Saharan Africa
  3. To provide a platform to network and identify possibilities for future cooperation

The second issue of the AFRHINET Newsletter focuses on the main activities and developments undertaken during the second year of the project. In this regard, the issue highlights its outcomes so far and entails a section on fostering capacities, technology-transfer and scaling-up the use of rainwater for small scale irrigation. Furthermore, it affords a synopsis on how the project endeavors to ensure its sustainability through specific key activities which inter alia, also sheds light on networking activities of the project.

The AFRHINET International, Networking, Dissemination and Round Table Event was held on the 28th September at the Holiday Inn in Harare, Zimbabwe.

The theme of the event was Raising Awareness on Rainwater Harvesting Technologies for Small-Scale Irrigation: Capacity Building, Technology Transfer and Upscaling.

The main objectives of the event were:
- Facilitating knowledge sharing among various stakeholders on issues relative to RWHI
- Fostering the implementation of the AFRHINET network and the Research and Technology Centres in all 4 partner countries
- Fostering efficient ways of implementing and upscaling AFRHINET activities through capacity building, technology transfer, networking and demonstration trials. IMG 0747


The dissemination event was well attended with over 40 relevant stakeholders including project partners from across the sub-Saharan part of the continent. The programme for the event comprised of 3 sessions, namely:
Session 1: Policy needs for successful Rainwater Harvesting in Zimbabwe
Session 2: Lessons from the field – Rainwater Harvesting Champions
Session 3: Round table event


Each session comprised of upto 5 presentations and was followed by plenary discussions which contributed to relevant solutions and outcomes in the light of the project goals and activities. A few interesting topics relative to the presentations were:
- Rain Water Harvesting and Irrigation methods in use in smallholder farming areas. What is the role of the Department in facilitating scaling up? Dept of Irrigation
- Technical and Policy guidelines to ensure successful adoption of RWHI technologies-ZINWA   
- Selected best experiences RWHI experiences from Kenya- SEARNET-ICRAF                                                                             
- Experiences with promotion and adoption of rain water harvesting technologies at community level. Challenges? Way Forward?-CIMMYT
- Farmers' experiences with RWHI (2 Farmers- 1 lady 1 male)

The highlight of the event a field trip to Zvishavane that took place on the 30th September 2015.

Zvishavane is a small mining town located in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe and is about 388 km from Harare. The late Mr. Zephania Masekos Phiri´s farm was visited who was a renowned conservationist and indegenious permaculturist in Zimbabwe. Mr. Phiri propagated irrigation practices that support efficient subsistence farming on marginal lands.

The International Rainwater Harvesting Symposium was organized by RAIN, SearNet, AFRHINET, ICRAF, AgWA and IFAD between the 1 st until the 12th of June 2015 in Ethiopia. The meeting brought together policymakers, practitioners, the private sector, scientists, NGO workers and UN agencies. Over 100 participants from 15 countries shared approaches and techniques on how to better mainstream rainwater harvesting into policy and practice. This was done during a High Level Policy Dialogue, a Writeshop and a Practical Training. Through interactive panel discussions, keynote presentations and parallel workshops in the Policy Dialogue, key messages were captured in the Addis Ababa Declaration.

The training aimed at cross fertilization of knowledge and skills through discussion forums, practical demonstrations, field tours and exercises amongst experts and practitioners. These encompassed the subjects on design and dimensioning of varied rainwater harvesting, small-scale irrigation and WASH technologies. The central questions that the training sought to answer revolved around the technical nature of implementing rainwater harvesting technologies in dry lands. The practical training consisted in 4 different elements, which were carried out in 4 different days.

§  Day 1: Watershed approaches and water harvesting
§  Day 2: Harnessing seasonal rivers in arid lands
§  Day 3: Water harvesting from roads

The participants and supporting organisations of the International Rainwater Harvesting Symposium 2015 call on policy makers, donors and practitioners to acknowledge the huge positive impact that rainwater harvesting at landscape level can exert on climate resilience, food security, and WASH. This declaration is based on the premise that rainfall is an important manageable resource that is available for wider use. Rainwater harvesting should be scaled up and integrated into broader policies, strategies and plans to increase its potential impact. We urge the immediate development of effective policy actions at local, national, and regional level in order to support the mobilization and use of rainwater for food security and rural livelihood improvement.

Most of Africa (Approx. 43%) is Drylands characterized by low & erratic rainfall thus economic water scarcity. These have led to high vulnerability, low incomes & chronic food insecurity. However, RWH with runoff farm ponds, which increases household resilience is a popular solution in guaranteeing water availability during dry spells & drought.

It’s time to think big!

What does it take to enable millions of small-holder farmers to install & benefit from RWH? With the Billon Dollar Business Plan, AFRHINET is cooperating with SEARNET-ICRAF and many other relevant organizations in sub-Saharan Africa in order to massively upscale cost-effective RWH solutions. Specifically, the AFRHINET Research and Technology Transfer Centres are exploring ways to upscale suitable RWH options in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

You can find following this link a summary highlighting the main points of this plan, which focuses on the upscaling of farm ponds. However, the AFRHINET Research and Technology Transfer Centres are also systematically considering other suitable RWH options depending on the biophysical and socio-economic characteristics of the potential implementation areas.

 

 

Afrhinet is happy to announces the new established partnership with the Roads for Water Consortium. The Roads for Water Consortium aims that by 2025, in at least half of the countries in Africa and 25% in Asia, 50% of all roads are water buffered.

In detail, Afrhinet is a new memeber of the Roads for Water Learning Alliance. The Roads for Water Learning Alliance brings together implementers, researchers, trainers, policy makers, funders and others who work on making roads work for natural resources management and large resilience. Afrhinet will from now on work in cooperation with the Roads for Water Consortium and many more partners to promote the idea of road water harvesting and equal and improved livelihood opportunities that can come with it.
