This project seeks to define the interplay between market access, crop and livestock technologies, and investment risks in water- and market-scarce environments that leads to technology adoption by farm families, enabling them to enhance food security and incomes through more efficient water use. Three main work areas will contribute to this objective.

1.Water efficient farm enterprises and climate risk management

2.Investment choices matched to farmer capacities and climatic risk environment

3. Market-led technologies for smallholder farmers developed and tested
