46. Dry-land Agroforestry Management Systems and Strategies: Business Plan for Scaling up-out agroforestry technologies in semi-arid Tanzania
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  Much as 50-80percent of Tanzania falls in the 400 – 1200 mm rainfall semi-arid zone with evapotranspiration normally exceeding rainfall in nine months of the year. The rainfall in the semi-arid of Tanzania is not only relatively inadequate but also of high variability. A high variability means that there can be a prolonged dry spell even during the rainy season, which is the characteristic of semi arid areas of Tanzania. The major occupation for the people in the semi-arid areas of Tanzania includes agriculture, pastoralism and agro-pastoralism. Tanzania is rich in minerals.
47. DFID - Agricultural Research
  Wednesday, March 22, 2006  by Admin
  Though external support to agricultural research is credited with some of the key successes in
development - notably the Green Revolution - donor investment in this area remains highly
controversial. The existence of multiple market failures and the need to ensure food security for a rapidly growing global population in an environmentally sustainable manner militate strongly towards sustained donor emphasis on research financing.

  Sunday, February 19, 2006  by Admin
  Micro-Irrigation Technologies
Rural Kenyans can no longer rely purely on subsistence farming. They need hard cash to buy enough food and to pay for school fees and healthcare. Yet most live on farms less than two acres in size. Many thousands of entrepreneurial farmers are now irrigating with KickStart's manual MoneyMaker irrigation pumps and changing their small subsistence farms into vibrant new commercial enterprises.

53. The Potential of Energy from Sugar Cane Wastes in Tanzania
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin

In the process, the factories produce about 40,000 tons of molasses (a good percentage of which is exported) and about 455,000 tons of bagasse as waste.
54. Large-Scale Biomass Energy Technologies: The Swedish experience and its Relevance to Africa
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  Biomass fuels were used extensively in Sweden during the second World War but rapidly lost in importance when cheap oil fuel became available after the war. In the late 1970s,
however, a renewed interest led to efforts that successfully reintroduced biomass fuels in the Swedish energy balance. Today, 18 percent of the total Swedish energy demand is met with
biomass. The Swedish experience can be of relevance to developing countries in e.g. Africa. Three reasons have contributed to bring biomass fuels back into the focus of interest in Sweden.
55. Harnessing technologies for sustainable development
  Tuesday, October 25, 2005  by Admin
  Poverty is multidimensional and widely spread in Africa. Incomes and consumption levels are low and volatile. The available productive assets, particularly for the poor, are few and meagre, increasing vulnerability to shocks. Illiteracy, malnutrition, and ill health are prevalent, with mortality and morbidity rates high. All these conditions have led to short life spans. Worsening the situation in recent years are the spread of HIV/AIDS and the resurgence of malaria and tuberculosis.
