Pic by Neil Palmer (CIAT). Irrigation of food crops during the dry season in drought-affected Nicaragua, made possible by the use of special reservoirs to capture and store excess rainwater during the country's rainy season. Pictures from this set are featured in a short photofilm, documenting the work of CIAT - through the Latin American Fund for Irrigated Rice (FLAR) - to enable smallholder farmers in Nicaragua to sustainable boost food production during the dry season, through rainwater harvesting.
