Une étude de la Chambre sud-africaine des entreprises agricoles (Agbiz), stipule que les cultures de blé et de maïs du Zimbabwe n’ont jamais dépassé les 10%, entre 1961 et 2016 dans la production totale de l’Afrique, laissant planer le doute sur le statut de grenier agricole africain du pays.

This paper reports on a form of multi-criteria analysis that provides a formal approach for evaluating the suitability of a wetland for specific agricultural uses, and ensures that explicit consideration is given to the possible consequences of such utilization. The method is based on a hybrid of ideas taken from concepts and methodologies related to: environmental flow assessments, land suitability classification and the hazard evaluation procedures used in the design of dams.

enough water to meet the full range

of peoples’ and ecosystems’ needs

for the foreseeable future, but

equity will only be achieved through

judicious and creative management.

An evaluation of available opportunities to revive irrigation on a long abandoned irrigation scheme in a dry region of Zimbabwe is presented by assessing water availability at catchment level. The aim is to enhance the livelihoods, income and nutrition of the communities that depend on the irrigation scheme through a sustainable management of revitalised irrigation infrastructure and ensure food security. Runoff generated in the catchment, with potential to flow into the dam that supplies water to the scheme, is estimated using the Soil Conservation Service curve number (SCS-CN) model.

The knowledge of runoff discharged by a catchment at its outlet is important for water accounting and water allocation to competing uses. Runoff generated by a catchment is important in determining the catchment water balance, estimating pollutant loads, and quantifying sediment yield and delivery ratio. The Soil Conservation Service triangular unit hydrograph (SCS-TUH) model was used in this study to simulate water discharged into Siya Dam from Rosva River Catchment in Masvingo Province, Zimbabwe.
