  Smallholder farming can and should be an engine for economic growth, poverty reduction and food security. In many areas, reliable access to water is what's missing from the equation.  
Project Methodology  
Opportunities – Constraints = Successful Uptake of Innovations
  Improving the success rate of agricultural water management projects and investments with a new, easy-to-use approach  
  While there are a number of well-documented methods for screening and evaluating agricultural and natural resources technologies, there is not an approach tailored to the specific challenges  
Project Impact
AgWater Solutions + Partners = Impact

Men + Women + Water = Greater Poverty Fighting Benefits
Using gender mapping and analysis to boost benefits from agricultural water management projects and investments
Agricultural Water Management (AWM) investments that enhance both women's and men's productivity are likely to yield the greatest gains in agricultural growth and poverty reduction, as well as narrow the
