Most of the agriculture in the Ethiopian part of the Nile Basin is rain-fed. Its low productivity can be explained to a large extent by the lack of appropriate rainwater management. Promoting rainwater management practices in Ethiopia is not new, but most have been promoted regardless of the bio-physical and socio-economic context and without considering local expertise.

This poster, prepared for the ILRI@40 series of events, gives an overview of efforts to improve rainwater management in Ethiopia using the Nile-Goblet tool in the Nile Basin Development Challenge (NBDC) project.
