Solar power has the potential to provide sustainable energy used for water pumping by more than 95%, compared to alternative resources.

In recent years, solar-powered irrigation has become increasingly attractive to countries as a reliable, clean-energy solution for agricultural water management, especially in areas with low elevation topography and high solar radiation incidence levels.

In this webinar, our guest experts will spotlight how Sub-Saharan African countries can simultaneously work towards agricultural development, gainful employment, rural poverty reduction and the sustainable management of natural resources, especially water.
