This book is the product of an ICARDA project to define supplemental irrigation in the Near East and North Africa. In cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (F AO) a meeting was held in Rabat, Morocco, on December , entitled "Regional Consultation on Supplemental Irrigation"; specialists from 11 different countries were brought together to discuss.

Although irrigation in Africa has the potential to boost agricultural productivities by at least 50 percent, food production on the continent is almost entirely rainfed. The area equipped for irrigation, currently slightly more than 13 million hectares, makes up just 6 percent of the total cultivated area. irrigation remains a faster and feasible solution, water availability for irrigation in the country is scarce. Kenya has four main drainage areas namely: Lake Victoria, Kerio Valley and Inland lakes, the Tana and Athi River basin, and the Ewaso Ng’iro North basin whose irrigation infrastructure has not been adequately developed.

Highlights Low irrigation contributes to Sub-Saharan Africa’s low agricultural productivity. We assess area potential with a combined bio-physical and socioeconomic analysis. We find profitable expansion potential of 24 million ha over the next 50 years. This is a percent increase over existing area of 13 million hectares. Both small- and large-scale irrigation are profitable.

Sprinkler irrigation first became a reality at the end of the 19th century, according to Morgan.
