Programme for Rural Irrigation Development

The Programme for Rural Irrigation Development (PRIDE) aims to enhance the resilience of rural communities to food insecurity and adverse effects of climate change in the northern and the southern regions of Malawi.

PRIDE will develop climate-smart land and water management systems for the smallholder farmers engaged in rainfed agriculture and cultivating on irrigated land. It will establish and strengthen the capacity of the Water Users' Association to manage, operate and maintain irrigation schemes for appropriate land and water governance. It will also build the capacity of the smallholder producers through farmer business schools so they can take advantage of the market opportunities. It will promote market linkages through value chain analysis to identify suitable crops and commodity platforms to bring together all actors in value chain.

Irrigation and water storage techniques are expected to increase agricultural productivity as it these will allow smallholder farmers to cultivate more crops. Enhanced access to weather information, irrigation, adapted agricultural technology and remunerative markets will improve smallholder's income up to eightfold and build their resilience to adverse effects of climate change. PRIDE is funded through a highly concessional loan and grant from IFAD and a complementary grant under the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP).
17,500 smallholder households, particularly women and young people, will benefit directly from PRIDE.
