Abstract

This report contributes to the first aim of the TEMARIN project through a study of the market for small-scale irrigation technologies in Kenya. It specifically analyses the strategies and capabilities of irrigation technology suppliers and their role in developing the small-scale irrigation market in the country. This includes outlining recent developments in the sector and providing an assessment of growth opportunities and business models for the diffusion of irrigation technologies to smallholder farmers. The report identifies a growing number of irrigation technology suppliers and the key drivers leading to their market entry. The idea is to improve the understanding of the role of private-sector actors in technology diffusion and market creation regarding climate adaptation of small-scale farming and to identify barriers to further market expansion. The conclusion summarizes the key findings and takeaways of the study.
