Improved food security and income for small farmers through pond irrigation in selected rural hill areas of Nepal
LILI’s main aspiration is to improve food security and income by providing better access to water for irrigation to small farmers through construction and rehabilitation of farmer managed irrigation schemes (FMIS). LILI provides technical assistance and fund for procuring non-local materials. LILI promotes mainly two types of irrigation systems/technologies. In general, construction refers to pond irrigation systems that are newly constructed and rehabilitation is done for existing canal-fed irrigation systems. The solution that we want to discuss in “Solutions for Water” is about pond irrigation systems.
