The project is also involving National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (INERA in Burkina Faso and INRAN in Niger), irrigation management institutions (DADI in Burkina Faso, DGGR and ONAHA in Niger), and professional irrigation associations (CNID B in Burkina and ANID in Niger). Finally regional organizations (ROPPA and ARID and ECOWAS water unit) will help in the dissemination phase.
