This assessment targets agricultural water extension agents and technical experts, providing them with clear indications on how to improve water harvesting (WH) capacity for agricultural production in the three case study countries, as well as how to select feasible and suited WH techniques for different geographical areas. It is an assessment of the status, performance and scope for improving WH for agriculture in the three countries and provides a portfolio of technologies with their suitability and feasible application to countries’ conditions. This report summaries the assessment of 42 WH best practices across the three case study countries using Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA). Each of the selected WH techniques is already extensively applied or has potential to be applied in Uganda, Burkina Faso and/or Morocco.
