T-COBSI is supporting the farmers to improve their food security by diversifying and increasing their food production through the application of Community-based Smallholder Irrigation (COBSI). The project is a successor to the Development Study which implanted 423 pilot projects. COBSI has proven to be a highly efficient approach due to its low cost, manageability, and swift return of the investment, and opened up 572 ha of irrigated land in two dry seasons. It is also effective in the area not suitable for large-scale irrigation.
