Hydraulic Ram Pump: A Practical Solution to Climate Change

Auke Idzenga

Agriculture and Development Notes, 2013, vol. 2, No 5, 2 pages

Abstract: Anangue is an upland village located in Murcia, Negros Occidental, Philippines. The primary livelihood in the village is farming. However, the villagers experience low agricultural productivity due to the lack of access to sufficient water. The nearest source of water in the village is a freshwater spring located 240 meters away and elevated by 80 meters. Thus, the community greatly depends on rainfall for domestic consumption and agricultural production. However, with the onset of climate change causing variations in the rainfall pattern and distribution, access to water became more difficult and costly.
