dc.description.abstract The paper briefly outlines research which indicates that effective participation of farmers through a participatory approach, and involvement of NGOs alongside research institutions, would be a prerequisite for the successful extension of supplemental irrigation, which is already practiced in the region, but not widespread. In Burkina Faso, agriculture is mainly rainfed, and highly dependent on climatic conditions, therefore particularly vulnerable to climate change. en
