Challenge

The south central region is the prime agricultural area in Iraq and the majority of farmers depend on irrigation networks to supply water to their farms.

Solution

This project will purchase and supply diesel powered water pumps to farmer’s cooperatives that are already being set up.

Long-Term Impact

Water pumps will increase Iraqi food production while generating sustainable economic growth -- two critical factors for improving the livelihoods of hundreds of Iraqi farmers.
