Aggricultural 1 von 1 When floods are advantageous, not hazardous
The FBLN aims to improve the livelihoods of those living in flood-based areas. It exchanges experiences and good practices, initiates and supports new programs and policies and mainstreams education and training.

The flood-based livelihoods network

is a network of spate irrigation professionals and practitioners. The network stimulates the development of programmes of implementation that improve the livelihoods of those in spate irrigation areas, exchanges experiences and good practices, helps upgrade training, identify priority fields for improvement and research and development.


Together we can make a difference

The Spate Irrigation Network was established in 2004 and transformed into the Spate Irrigation Network Foundation in 2014. The name was changed to Flood Based Livelihoods Network Foundation in 2016 – in recognition of the different flood-based livelihood systems in different geographies, all meriting more attention than provided nowadays.
