New tools shine a light on solar irrigation in Asia and Africa

CGIAR Initiative on NEXUS Gains 25 April 2023


Solar irrigation holds huge promise for food security, income generation and climate resilience in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. But the rise in solar pumping also carries some risks. If pumps are undersized, they will not be able to provide farmers with enough water. If they are oversized, they risk over-abstraction of groundwater and underuse of what are expensive assets. How can we ensure that solar technology is appropriately matched to local conditions and farmers’ requirements?


This question provided the inspiration for the CGIAR Initiative on NEXUS Gains’ latest webinar, ‘Nexus Tools to support Solarization of Agriculture in Asia and Africa’. Held on Tuesday, April 18, the event was the tenth in a series of seminars highlighting NEXUS Gains’ research and its aim to realize multiple benefits across water, energy, food and the environment. It was facilitated by Dr Muzna Alvi, a Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and a member of NEXUS Gains’ Work Package 3, which explores the sustainable and inclusive energizing of food and water systems.
