The Water and Environmental Center – Sana’a University in collaboration with the spate irrigation project has organized the Regional WUA-to-WUA Knowledge Sharing Workshop during the period 24 – 28 November 2013.
The main goal was to exchange experience between the successful Water User Associations of the spate irrigation schemes in the region. The workshop was mainly attended by Water User Associations’ representatives from Ethiopia, Sudan and Yemen.
Eng. Ahmed M. Ali Abu Sin has guided the Sudanese team in this workshop and he has enlightened the attendants about the Sudanese experience in spate irrigation schemes in the Gash, Toker and Abu Habil. The workshop was a good opportunity to share experience and for knowledge dissemination with the participants from the other two countries. The participants have conducted several field visits to Yemeni spate irrigation schemes, where they closely observed the Yemeni experience on the ground.
