The Toolbox on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS) is designed to enable advisors, service providers and practitioners in the field of solar irrigation to provide broad hands-on guidance to end-users, policy-makers and financiers. Risks related to system efficiency, financial viability and the unsustainable use of water resources can thus be minimized. The Toolbox comprises informative modules supplemented with user-friendly software tools (calculations sheets, checklists, guidelines).
A series of seven tutorial videos which explore the topic of SPIS and complements the resources and tools under the Toolbox on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS) and the SPIS App. The videos are also available in French and Swahili and cover a comprehensive range of topics such as the benefits and challenges, investment and finance, water requirements, system components, farm suitability, maintenance and monitoring and the summary and a way forward.
