Technical Note: Supporting and promoting flood-based farming systems
Title: Technical Note: Supporting and promoting flood-based farming systems
Description: Flood Based Farming Systems have often been overlooked, if not misunderstood, by decision makers, agricultural experts and professionals. A good example is the construction of large-scale surface water storage that more often than not does not taken into account the presence of downstream flood based livelihood. Literature related to the topic is relatively sparse. This technical note intends to bring forward the concept of floodplains as valuable areas of ecological, agricultural and economic importance. Moreover it may serve as guideline for practitioners on a range of techniques and technologies to be applied in floodplains.
