Irrigation is closely associated with the start of human civilization, has been a major technology in (post-)colonial development efforts, and is regaining importance within debates on climate, water & food. I want to know how irrigation realities emerge from short-term actions of (non-)human agents. 


Read my new book on the Gezira Scheme in Sudan, published by Palgrave in 2016. In 2014, I presented the outline of the book at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society in Munich, Germany, and was interviewed about it.
