The first objective of the project is to revive drying springs by building a high level of understanding of localised spring hydrogeology; extensive mapping of all spring sources in the study areas; building a comprehensive understanding of the
powered irrigation pumps (SPIP) provides an alternative technology that has been tested widely in the region and has been found to be a technically proven and workable solution and is suited for all categories of farms – large holder, small
Novel interventions for climate change adaptation are a step forward in meeting grass-root needs. Such has been the case with HI-AWARE’s intervention in reviving the traditional dugwells in the Potohar region.
Reviving Springs and Providing Access to Solar Powered Irrigation Pumps (SPIP)
solar pumping system to irrigate the newly developed orchards along the Hunza River using drip irrigation in Upper Gojal, Gilgit-Baltistan. It is the first attempt to pilot solar water pumping and micro-irrigation in the arid region under project
Mizoram’s forest cover is the highest of any state in India but it is severely degraded. ICIMOD’s Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+ Initiative) is working with the Advanced Research Centre for Bamboo and Rattan
Energy efficiency studies have traditionally focused on households or industries. Recent studies by the World Bank and the US Agency for International Development (USAID)’s South Asia Regional Initiative for Energy Integration (SARI/EI) programme
With rapidly changing climate and socio-economic conditions, farmers in Nepal demand better and new ways of irrigating their farms. The Department of Irrigation (DOI) is the nodal agency for irrigation in Nepal and their engineers are committed to
pumps are as powerful as diesel pumps, but cleaner, less expensive, quieter, and easier to use. The operating cost, after the price of the pump itself, is essentially free. The added findings on gender equity could make them an even more
and providing access to solar powered irrigation pumps (SPIP) through community-based water
The Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) on Water Land and Ecosystems (WLE) takes a research for development approach to address challenges in four major regions: the Ganges; the Nile-East Africa; the Volta-Niger; and
ICIMOD is facilitating the strategic partnership between PCRWR and WWF for a wider conversation cum development of water resources in Pakistan.
Solar energy has been used for centuries for drying crops, clothes, wood, and crop residues, and heating buildings. But now methods have been developed to make these activities more efficient, and to use Solar energy in different ways. There are two
ICIMOD introduces low-cost solar water pumping technology
A roadshow demonstrating solar powered water pumps was taken to several districts across Nepal from 14 to 21 October 2014 by a team from ICIMOD and Atom solar, a solar company based in India.
In its commitment to reduce its institutional carbon foot print and promote renewable energy, ICIMOD signed a contract with Sipradi Energy of Kathmandu to expand the use of solar electrification in its buildings and office campus.
The systems are designed to operate under adequate sunshine. On a sunny day, the two-HP pump can discharge up to 28,000 litres per hour for irrigating up to five hectares of land and the one-HP pump can discharge up to 16000 litres per hour and
Researchers, policy makers, and development practitioners in China, India, and Nepal need to actively collaborate to improve and share knowledge on managing water resources in the Koshi River basin by integrating livelihoods and gender as core
ICIMOD’s Koshi Basin Program and Helvetas started an initiative to develop Water Use Master Plans (WUMPS) in Sindhuli, Ratancharua and Baseshwor districts. WUMP promotes effective and equitable water management at local level.
