Alumni Success Stories: Drip Irrigation in Sudan

Rashid Sirelkhatim Mahgoub attended the CIPSEM Short Course on Soil and Land Resources in 2015. We are delighted to hear about his new work in eastern Sudan:

Rashid is now coordinator at the Talawiet Organization for Development, a local NGO which applies a drip irrigation project developed by the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Agricultural Research Cooperation (ARC). The pilot project showed that the method reduces water use by more than 60% while increasing food yields by more than 40%.

Read more about this promising project, the science behind it and Rashid’s work on the IAEA website.

CIPSEM is turning heads …

… and getting attention in the last University Journal of TU Dresden. The occasion was the festive closing of the 66th UNEP/UNESCO/BMUB Internatioal Short Course on Soil and Land Resources and the general overall efforts in education towards sustainable development provided by CIPSEM and its partners.
