Fridays for Climate | The solar power irrigation systems for Kalungu 💦

 

In Uganda agriculture is subject to climate change events such as episodes of drought and irregular rains. In the Kalungu district, the four new irrigation systems installed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), through EU GCCA+ funding, are very timely and will improve water supply for farmers, increasing their harvests. 🌱💦 

These small-scale irrigation systems are powered by solar photovoltaic energy. They allow farmers to reduce their electricity bills, as well as their carbon dioxide emissions.
