Enabling poor rural people
to overcome poverty



The goal of the scaling up micro-irrigation systems project in India, Madagascar and Guatemala (SCAMPIS) is to improve the livelihoods and food security of 30,000 smallholder farmer households, especially women in these countries.

To achieve this goal, the project is using micro-irrigation systems (MIS)  and where appropriate uses liquid organic fertilizer systems (LOF) to address the following challenges:

  • water scarcity and low soil fertility which negatively impact productivity
  • providing organic fertilizers  to smallholder farmers

SCAMPIS is funded by COOPERNIC (Coopérative européenne de référencement et de négociation des indépendants commerçants). COOPERNIC is a European sourcing alliance of independent retailers – COLRUYT (Belgium), CONAD (Italy), COOP (Switzerland), E.LECLERC (France) and REWE Group (Germany) – that contributes to sustainable social development since its creation in 2006.

SCAMPIS objectives

  • improve food security
  • improve water management and increase water availability for agricultural activities
  • help smallholders to mitigate water scarcity during the dry seasons
  • improve soil fertility
  • strengthen a private sector supply chains for the delivery of technologies
  • raise awareness of policy makers, donors, private sector on micro irrigation systems advantages
