Irrigation, soil and water engineering remain vital to sustainable agricultural development and food security across the world and Africa in particular. One of Africa Union vision for agriculture is to improve productivity of agriculture to achieve an annual production growth rate of 6 %, with particular attention to small-scale farmers by the year 2015. To respond to this call this research group has embarked on continuous research on water resources for irrigation so as to bridge the gap between inefficient and efficient irrigation, soil and water engineering systems. An integrated water resources management approach is central to most of our research fields.
