Drip Irrigation: Grow more vegetables with less water

Drip irrigation is a method of watering plants with single drops of water at a time. The set up consists of tapes with very small outlets that let out water one drop at a time wetting the soil around the plants roots. The technology was developed in the USA and Israel for growing crops in dry climates where water is limited.

Capacity building

In order to enable communities to access and share information through Maarifa centres, ALIN continuously builds the capacities of infomediaries to support both dissemination and capture of information about innovations and best practices from communities. Capacity building is done either directly or through partners. Areas of capacity building include thematic workshops on skills in writing and production of multimedia clips; exchange visit to learn best practices and local innovations.
