Africa to Asia and Back Again  : Testing Adaptation in Flood-Based Farming Systems

Background on FBFSs

The area under these systems in Africa and Asia is estimated at 20-35 million hectares. In spite of this huge area, FBFSs are neglected in most countries, with most attention going to conventional perennial irrigation systems or alternatively to rain-fed agriculture.

FBFSs represent different resource systems that depend on temporary floods such as:

1) Spate irrigation and flood water spreading from ephemeral rivers.

2) Flood recession/ flood rise systems, inundation canals, etc… centered on flood plains.

Land depression systems, based on temporary land inundation
