Smallholder farmers (SFs) are cornerstone actors in eradicating poverty and hunger. Companies have recently focused on SFs as potential customers and suppliers. Several hindrances yet prevent SFs to be commercially viable actors. In this respect, sustainable business models (SBMs) bring opportunities for companies to increase profit, improve...

Improved water management is an important strategy to support smallholder farming, and thus to foster food security and improved livelihoods. Within this strategy, technologies like water pumps, especially those operating on renewable energies, are key, as they are more environmentally sound and affordable alternatives. Their successful and...

Pumped irrigation is a way to intensify smallholder production. In this context, the Dutch company aQysta has developed the Barsha pump (BP), the first-ever commercial version of the spiral pumps. BPs, however, face several constraints that affect the decision-making and access of smallholders to this and other agricultural technologies, and...

The goal of this research is to assess technical and economic feasibility of hydropower at the weir-complex of Driel. A local initiative opting to improve the environment gained interest in the idea and asked Arcadis NL for help. The weir complex at Driel lays in a key position in the Dutch river Delta and regulates the flow to the IJssel and...

Water pumping systems driven by renewable energies are more environmentally sound and, at times, less expensive alternatives to electric- or diesel-based ones. From these, hydro-powered pumps have further advantages. Nevertheless, these seem to be largely ignored nowadays. More than 800 scientific and nonscientific documents contributed to...

Introduction In May 2006 many rivers and creeks in the interior of Suriname caused flooding and a lot of inhabitants were surprised by the water. Over 22,000 people were struck in a way that their houses were (temporarily) uninhabitable. In the most places the duration of the flooding was limited to three to six days, after that the waterlevel...

The potential for hydro power in Nepal is immense; the country clings to the south slopes of the Himalayas and has numerous streams and rivers that are fed by the monsoon rains and the melting mountain snow. The total potential is estimated at 83,000 MW, and even if only a fraction of this is economically feasible to develop it sets an aim for...
