Training course on water harvesting: Libya, Tunisia and ICARDA work together to build national capacity

Libyan soil and water engineers are participating in an intensive training course on rainwater harvesting methods, that is expected to significantly strengthen national research and development capacity in this key area. The two-month course, which concluded in mid June, was organized jointly by ICARDA and Tunisian research centers – Institut National Agronomique de Tunisie and  l’Institut des Régions Arides – and conducted at the Medenine research station in Tunisia. The course is part of a collaborative project on water harvesting and irrigation management involving Libya’s Agricultural Research Center (ARC) and ICARDA. Ten ARC engineers are participating in the course, which combines theory with practical training and field visits to water harvesting sites – some new, others centuries old but still effective.
