Northern Ghana is hot and dry with only one raining season, limiting the vital farming season to only four to five months each year, making it the most poverty-ridden area in the country. Global climate change resulting in long dry spells during the short farming season has resulted in rural-urban migration to big cities in search of meager or non-existent jobs. The primary goal is to assist poor small-scale farmers to make judicious use of their limited irrigation water, ultimately extending the farming season to promote socio-economic development and food security to curb rural-urban migration.
