This Working Paper summarizes research conducted as part of the AgWater Solutions Project in Ethiopia between 2009 and 2012. Researchers from the AgWater Solutions Project conducted a situation analysis in 2009, which identified a range of options deemed to be technically feasible, affordable and practical for smallholder farmers: water-lifting technologies, groundwater for agriculture and manual well drilling, community-based watershed management, on-farm water storage, small reservoirs and rainwater harvesting.
