    Agro-Hydrological Modeling for Improved Agricultural Irrigation Water Management under Climate and Land Use Change for River Basin Scale Irrigation Projects Planning in Ethiopia: A Review
    Author(s): Natan Molla Yimer*

    The development of irrigation and agricultural water management holds significant potential to improve productivity and reduce vulnerability to climactic volatility and land transformation in any country. Although Ethiopia has abundant rainfall and water resources, its agricultural system does not yet fully benefit from the technologies of water management and irrigation. Improved water management for agriculture has many potential benefits in efforts to reduce vulnerability and improve productivity. According to climate change assessments, less precipitation and higher temperatures can be expected in the country. Besides, an increment in drought studies shows high land degradation and nutrient depletion of agricultural land as well. Such climatic and land conditions require an effort to improve agricultural water management efficiency and to optimize irrigatio.. Read More»
