    Description of study area. Gezira State is located in the central part of Sudan. It is bounded by latitudes 14°24′04″N and 33°31′11″E (Kogan ) (Fig. 1).The state is considered to be one of the most densely populated with a total population of million people (53% rural, 35% urban and 12% nomad) with an annual growth rate of % (Sudan population census , ; Gezira. started implementing projects to ensure sustainable irrigation for farmers using solar pumps. UNDP, OCHA, JICA, IFAD are currently running projects on replacement on diesel powered pumps with solar pumps around Northern Sudan. The Ministry of Water Resources, Irrigation and Electricity (MoWIE).

    Comparative assessment of the feasibility for solar irrigation pumps in Sudan. Irrigation is one of the essential unit operations for agriculture and Sudan as an agricultural country with rich natural resources has an urgent need to optimize the utilization of energy, water, and land in a most sustainable way. In River Nile state in northern Sudan, three girls from Um Zour village in the area of Wad Hamed drowned in the Nile. The Sudanese Floods Committee warned that the Nile will rise further in the.

    Sudan (/ s uː ˈ d ɑː n /; Arabic: السودان ‎ as-Sūdān), officially the Republic of the Sudan (Arabic: جمهورية السودان ‎ Jumhūriyyat as-Sūdān), is a country in Northeast ed by Egypt to the north, Libya to the northwest, Chad to the west, the Central African Republic to the southwest, South Sudan to the south, Ethiopia to the southeast, Eritrea to. The cost of irrigation is one of the major items comprising the total cost of production in the Northern State of Sudan. High prices of diesel used for irrigation, low efficiency of irrigation units and other problems associated with pumping water from the Nile and underground water are the main reasons.

History. The waters of the Nile in Sudan have been used for centuries for traditional irrigation, taking advantage of the annual Nile flood. Sudan’s Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, the Ministry of Water Resources Irrigation and Electricity, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Sudan signed an agreement on Tuesday to implement a project on solar water pumps for sustainable agriculture in the country.

The project, in partnership with the UNDP and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), aims. This study aims to identif y the challenges facing canal and drip irrigation in Northern Sudan and to a ssess these possibilities for s ustainable irrig ation, wit h respect to the future benefits.

Khartoum, May 21 st, - The Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MoFEP); the Ministry of Water Resources Irrigation and Electricity (MoWRIE), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Sudan signed today an agreement to implement a project on Solar water pumps for sustainable agriculture in the country.

The project aims to promote renewable. When the Jordanian army went shopping for land in northern Sudan in lateits scouts came across what appeared to be a food-growing paradise. The terrain was vast, flat, and fat with nutrients. Sudan has the largest irrigated area in sub-Saharan Africa and the second largest in all Africa, after Egypt.

The total estimated area fully equipped for irrigation is 1, ha and an estimated cropped area of 1, ha, i.e. an estimated cropping intensity of 65%. make canal irrigation costly. Drip irrigation is considered as a possible solution to the challenges facing canal irrigation. This study aims to identify the challenges facing canal and drip irrigation in Northern Sudan and to assess these possibilities for sustainable irrigation, with respect to.

Omer () found that approximately PVPs have been fully installed at a cost of roughly USD 6, per pump in Sudan. These systems were more effective in supplying drip irrigation systems for. Sincepeople in the area have been learning and using new kinds of water harvesting techniques, and have been trained in the use of irrigation pumps, tractors and drought resistant seeds.

The initiative is part of a broader push by UNDP to implement pilot climate change adaptation projects in Sudan. than years (Postel, ). Traces of ancient irrigation systems are also found in Nubia or North Sudan, where people grew emmer, barley and einkorn (a primitive type of wheat).
