    The focus of the book is on Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), home to most of the world’s poorest countries, although insights from other regions and more affluent developing countries are also included. Case studies of many of the best-known PPPs in Africa are used to illustrate these findings. Moreover, as evidence from Asia shows, irrigation has the potential to reduce poverty rates and income inequalities. But mobilising investments is key to taking advantage of this potential, which can be a problem, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.
