Sustainability concerns in African irrigation



Sustainability of irrigated agriculture Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Vimeiro, Portugal, 21-26 March 1994: 589-599



The extent and distribution of irrigation in Africa are outlined. In 1987, the irrigated area was estimated as 9.5 million ha, with 61% of the irrigated area found in Egypt, Sudan, and Morocco.
