The impact of small-scale irrigation on household food security: The case of Filtino and Godino irrigation schemes in Ethiopia



The impact of small-scale irrigation on household food security: The case of Filtino and Godino irrigation schemes in Ethiopia



Irrigation and Drainage Systems 22(2): 145-158



Ethiopia's irrigation potential is estimated at 3.7 million hectare, of which only about 190,000 ha (4.3% of the potential) is actually irrigated. There is little information on the extent to which the so far developed irrigation schemes have been effective in meeting their stated objectives of attaining food self-sufficiency and eradicating poverty.
