The El Guerdane PPP irrigation project is covering financing, design, construction and management of irrigation infrastructure of an area of 10,000 ha. The project includes headworks at the Aoulouz Dam, 90 km of water water conveyance and 300 km of irrigation network. The private operator has been contracted for the delivery of 45 million m3 of water per year. The financing was provided by the state (48%), the operator (44%) and farmers (8%).

The Aqua-4D® water treatment application for irrigation

  • Repulsive effect on nematodes
  • High performance with brackish water
  • Substantial savings of fertilizers and phytosanitary products

The physical water treatment Aqua-4D® is presently the only non chemical water treatment technology, scientifically proved, which reduces the number of nematodes to the point of eliminating damages to the hosting plant.

Comprehensive Water Life Cycle Assessment for decision analysis

Several features of water resources make their impacts difficult to quantify using conventional Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approaches. Water consumption varies spatially and temporally, different water sources are not necessarily commensurable, and impact depends on the state of the resource base that is drawn upon. Despite these difficulties, comprehensive water LCA, if performed correctly, can be a useful tool in land use, policy planning, and mitigation decisions.

This solution focuses on the management of an irrigated scheme on the river Sebou, in the Northern Moroccoby Water Users Associations (WUA). The Sebou Basin concentrates 20% of Morocco’s population and holds a third of the country’s water resources. This Basin is a real “water tower” for a semi-arid Morocco and the aim is to sustainably mobilize its resources. Two projects of irrigation has been implemented in Moyen Sebou (the first one from 1996 to 2001 covering6500 ha of irrigated land and the second one from 2010 to 2014 covering4500 ha).

IRRIGATION WATER QUALITY AND WASTEWATER REUSE

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)
Loading...Loading...

Large-scale irrigation projects can bring prosperity to an area but less desirable changes can also occur as a result of increased intensity of land and water use. One important change in the hydrological regime is that of an alteration or degradation in quality that takes place as water is used and re-used within the hydrological basin. In addition, wastewater generated by agricultural and urban sources can degrade water quality and must be considered when developing a river basin management plan.

The Government of Zambia, in conjunction with the World Bank, has prepared the Zambia Irrigation Development Support Project to provide bulk water irrigation infrastructure and establishment of commercially and market oriented irrigation schemes in selected high “potential” areas across the country using a contractual approach based on the concept of Public Private Partnership (PPP).

The PPP project concept and approach first, irrigation scheme financial sustainability: the Government will invest in irrigation schemes with commercial potential and income streams sufficient to cover fees for maintenance and operation as well as productive and marketing services.  Second, professional irrigation scheme management: successful management will require services provided by a contracted O&M Operator.

Low cost Kit solutions for the irrigation efficiency improvement in the Maghreb oases- Study case of Southern Tunisia.

For the case of southern Tunisia, the introduction of the sprinkler and the drop systems for the main cultivations systems which is the date palm, remains definitely a technical challenge and requires relevant installation costs.

The test in pilot farms of four variants (Two of sprinkler systems and two for drop systems) of PVC pipes using simply the water borne delivered discharge (less than 0.5 m) for the irrigation of the palm date every two weeks revealed conclusive results in term of water saving, water productivity and irrigation material reduction costs aspects. The implementation of those irrigation techniques could be supervised by the local agriculture development organization in collaboration with the farmers community often organized in common interest groups.

POSSIBILITE DE RENTABILISER LE DESSALEMENT DE L’EAU DE MER AU NIVEAU DE L’IRRIGATION : CAS DU PROJET PPP DE LA PLAINE DE CHTOUKA – MAROC

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)
Loading...Loading...

La situation de la zone sur la côte atlantique pourrait constituer une solution pour sauvegarder l’activité agricole, et ce en faisant recours au dessalement de l’eau de mer pour augmenter l’offre hydraulique et combler le déficit en matière d’eau d’irrigation et alléger l’exploitation de la nappe.

Le projet consiste, dans le cadre d’un PPP, en la construction d’une unité de dessalement des eaux de mer sur la côte atlantique d’une capacité de 167.000 m3/j destinés à l’irrigation, d’une adduction de l’eau dessalée et d’un réseau d’irrigation sous pression (irrigation localisée) concernant une superficie de 13.000 ha.
