Coup d'envoi du projet Sertões dans le Nordeste ! Financé par AFD France et porté par le Cirad en partenariat avec Funceme, le projet va permettre d'améliorer la gestion de l'eau, la production agricole et la sobriété énergétique.

Le projet vise à co construire des solutions d’irrigation avec les principaux acteurs du secteur de la petite irrigation au Burkina Faso, notamment les services d’appui à l’innovation. Il porte sur la petite irrigation privée autour des barrages et dans les bas-fonds, ainsi que sur l’irrigation de complément à partir de petits bassins. Il s’agira de trouver des solutions aux problèmes de gestion de la ressource eau souterraine et de surface notamment au niveau des puits, des pompes ou de l’apport d’eau aux plantes. Le projet mobilise des équipes pluridisciplinaires africaines et européennes, notamment en hydrologie, en agronomie et en sciences sociales.

ACTIS COMPUTER plans to offer home gardeners an innovative information technology (IT) solution to schedule irrigation with only little information needed. This system is working with past meteorological data and weather forecast.

The ACTIRRIG project aims at realising the proof of concept by using OPTIRRIG crop model in « real time » to determine dates and doses of water applications, under experimental conditions at the Lavalette experimental station.

Food security and water management in the Mediterranean Region are challenged by reduced water availability due to climate change. While compelling technologies exist to improve the performance and resilience of water systems, progress has been slow in practice. One major difficulty is the disconnection between research results with real market needs and end-users demand. The MAGO project will make this connection by addressing some key barriers to innovation diffusion and adoption (e.g. social and political issues, need for affordable solutions, capacity building and new business models).

 

MAGO will demonstrate novel solutions to enhance integrated water resources management for a sustainable agriculture in the Mediterranean Region. These solutions will boost water use efficiency in agriculture, the use of alternative water resources and climate change adaptation. They will be demonstrated in Tunisia, Spain, France and Lebanon. These solutions will build upon (1) a novel participatory approach with end-users and stakeholders and (2) a new online collaborative platform for researchers and entrepreneurs for delivering web applications.

The research project GOETHE "Governing Mediterranean coastal basins to better fight against the eutrophication of lagoons and initiate their ecological restoration" is an interdisciplinary project that brings together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds to analyze inland inputs of nutrients at the entry of lagoons, as well as their impact on the ecological functioning of the aquatic ecosystems in Thau, Etang de l’Or et des Palavasiens. One of the original features of the project lies in the study of feedback loops, considered from two points of view: from the viewpoint of public policy analysis with the study of the policy feedback loop process (from policy evaluation towards policy decision) but also and above all from the point of view of political ecology, by studying the more counter-intuitive feedbacks from downstream to upstream of the watershed.
