The research project “Harnessing floods to enhance livelihoods and ecosystem services” is funded by the CGIAR research program on Water, Land and Ecosystems and it is being implemented in the Gash area in Sudan by the Hydraulics Research Center (HRC) of the Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity over the period Jan. 2015 to Dec. 2016 in collaboration with partners, Spate Irrigation Network Foundation (leading partner), MetaMeta, UNESCO-IHE and Mekelle University.
The Research Problem
Recognizing the importance of Flood-based Farming Systems “FBFS” for local livelihoods and economies, the Sudanese government supported by donors such as IFAD started investing in the improvement of infrastructure (weirs, intake and canals) and on-farm practices to enhance agricultural productivity.
However, it is unknown how these interventions at scheme level interact with other functions provided by floods at the local and landscape level and how these interventions affect livelihoods of different stakeholders.
