Smart Water For Agriculture (SWA) Project

   WARREC was selected by SNV (Netherlands) to be the National Hosting Institution for “The National Irrigation Acceleration Platform (N-IAP)”, of the Smart Water for Agriculture (SWA) Programme in Kenya. The platform is critical in advancing irrigation agenda in the country and allow expert knowledge to reach farmers while ensuring that issues affecting the famers reach the decision makers, for a more harmonized and targeted intervention. The SWA project is supporting two (2) JKUAT MSC students through research support targeted at innovations developed in the Netherlands, and which are being piloted in Kenya in irrigated agriculture.
