For the past fifteen years, smallholder private irrigation has been promoted in Nigeria, Niger and to a lesser extent in Burkina Faso, Mali, Ghana, or Kenya. Low-cost drilling, pumping, and water distribution techniques have been successfully introduced and many small farmers were able to increase their income. Lessons learned from these promising experiences show that some challenges persist: processing, storage, and transportation of agricultural products remain an issue in many countries and environmental impact is not often properly measured and mitigated. These issues should be considered in smallholder private irrigation projects to make it a sustainable solution.
