Investment Scenario Modeling Tool
As part of this research, an investment tool was developed by scientists at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), which allows investors to compare the potential reach and income generation of smallholder agricultural water management investments across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The analysis underlying the scenarios is based on an integrated modeling system that combines geographic (GIS) data analysis, biophysical and economic predictive modeling, and crop mix optimization tools. The potential of each technology is also summarized in these regional mapping fact sheets, which detail the potential of each technology in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Read more...
