The impact of farming systems on irrigated rice development projects-The Jahaly Pacharr Smallholder Irrigation Project, The Gambia.

The Rice Irrigation Development Project (RIDEP), which started operations inwas financed to address the rehabilitation of a number of pumped irrigation schemes in the CRD. The plan to develop ha of rainfed rice swamps had been dropped. Out of the originally planned ha pumped irrigated perimeters only ha (42%) of the target has been rehabilitated by February ,however, the achieved area exceed the scaled down target of ha.

This assumption is challenged for the Mandinka: women cultivate rainfed rice, having ownership or use‐rights to rice land, while men control upland and grow groundnuts and millets. Both cultivate household and personal crops.

Three development projects introduced irrigated rice to men who therefore control this land and by:   This paper discusses the significance of gender-based conflicts for thefailure of Gambian irrigated rice projects. In particular, it illustrateshow resource control of a gendered crop, rice, shifts from females to maleswith the development of pump-irrigated rice projects.

Irrigation imposes aradically different labor regime on household producers, demanding thatthey intensify labor Cited by: This study examines the effects of technological change and commercialization of rice production in The Gambia, focusing on the links between production, income, consumption and nutrition.

It investigates whether the modernization of rice production encourages the diversion of labour from other activities, or whether it merely increases the leisure time of its by: 4.

River Gambia is the main source of surface water in the country and is suitable for tidal and pump irrigation. There are also abundant underground water resources available for drinking and irrigation.

Irrigation, particularly, the Tidal irrigation system is not expensive and can be used in areas where the soil is fertile. It takes advantage of the ocean tides to force river water onto fields. Swampy areas along the section of The River Gambia located from to km from Banjul are suitable for growing approximat tons of rice.

The area equipped for irrigation, currently slightly more than 13 million hectares, makes up just 6 percent of the total cultivated area.

Eighty-five percent of Africa's poor live in rural areas and mostly depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. As a result, agricultural development is key. In The Gambia, the rice production systems can be grouped into five categories: upland, lowland rainfed, irrigated (pump and tidal), freshwater swamps, and seasonally saline mangrove swamps.
