Description

Around 70% of the poor in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia are rural, and agriculture is often their only livelihood opportunity. Proper irrigation technologies could help them do better in terms of productivity and income.
This 3-minutes animation illustrates the impacts of access to motor pumps for irrigation on farmers' livelihood, food security and poverty reduction. 
It shows where to invest, because in sub-Saharan Africa, investments in motor pumps could benefit 187 million people and generate net revenues of USD 22 billion a year. 
Animation produced by Kantfish.com Production with an original soundtrack by DDGProject.com for FAO in the framework of the AGWATER Solutions project.
