The third edition of the ‘Salon International de Pompage Solaire’ was a key indicator to the success of the previous editions which reflected the companies’ growing interest for solar pumping. It was the place by default where expertise in pumping water systems, solar energy technologies and irrigation technologies was exchanged. The salon aimed to answer a real need in terms of sustainable development and represented an opportunity to come up with solutions to the problem of defective resource management.
During this 3rd edition of the International Solar Pumping Exhibition under the theme "Climate Change Management through the Development of Solar Pumping", ACS team participated in a conference programmed by GIZ which aimed to provide farmers with key elements of financing opportunities in order to develop clean energy projects in agriculture, to enable small and medium-sized farmers to improve their yield and productivity while saving water and energy, and to sustain economic and social development.
