Transforming irrigation in southern Africa

Our research on Transforming irrigation in southern Africa (TISA) (ACIAR LWR/2016/137) in Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, aims to find means of meeting the African government’s plans for greater food security while using limited water resources more sustainably. The project is funded with support from the Australian Government via the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, with additional contributions from participating organisations.

The project is led in Australia by The Australian National University, with contributions from CSIRO Land and Water and the University of South Australia. Partners in Africa include the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Ardhi University of Agriculture in Tanzania, and the National Institute for Irrigation in Mozambique.
