Flood Irrigation and The Spate Irrigation Network Foundation

Seasonal floods often bring about death and destruction… but for around 100 million people around the world living in marginal ecosystems, they are a key source of irrigation. Managing them to do so is an art and science that has been practiced for centuries.

Since 2004, The Spate Irrigation Network Foundation has been carrying out research, documentation, and dissemination of these practices…. as part of its effort to bring it to the mainstream. Because in a rapidly changing world, with an increasingly variable climate, we need to see floods as an asset.
