Policy Analysis of Water for Productive Use Among Smallholder Irrigators in Ethiopia
Analysis and illustrative cases from Oromia and Tigray National Regional States
The primary goal of this research is to provide an analysis of the policy and strategy environment of water for smallholder productive use in Ethiopia and recommendation to advise Oxfam and stakeholders of possible leveraging points and on how to position for more influence in the future with actors such as the government, donors, and NGOs on the topic of water for small scale farmers and pastoralists. Oxfam America has been supporting such interventions since 2010, in conjunction with partner organizations. Oxfam America commissioned an external evaluation to derive learning from four years (2010-2013) of programming experience for greater influence on policy and practice nation-wide. This analysis is part of the wider evaluation. For more information, please read the Evaluation of the Water Program in Ethiopia report.
