Extreme Climate

Solar irrigation system



Challenge Background

CREACC-NG works in remote areas of Northern Nigeria to help farmers adapt to climate change. Villages in Northern Nigeria have been disappearing due to desert encroaching southward; they experience vulnerable conditions such as food insecurity, loss of livelihood, and an increase in multidimensional poverty. Subsistence farmers still find it difficult to water their plants because diesel engines are quite expensive and fueling them on a daily basis makes it even harder. The farmers at the end of harvest do not gain much profit due to the high cost of diesel and the pumping machines

What we are looking for

We are looking for a simple solar powered irrigation system that can help smallholder farmers to wet their irrigated farms especially during the dry season.

Solution criteria

Cost effective solution
Easy maintenance
Easy to reproduce in mass
Easy to operate/install

Centre for Renewable Energy and Action on Climate Change

CREACC-NG was established to meet the basic needs of underserved, hard to reach, and isolated communities with clean energy for agriculture, water, health, using solar technology. We established Native Trees on Farms (NToF) as well as organic farming practices through funding from French Embassy and Canadian High Commission.
