AFRHINET is an ACP-EU Technology Transfer Network on Rainwater Harvesting Irrigation Management for Sustainable Dryland Agriculture, Food Security and Poverty Alleviation in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The AFRHINET project is part of an ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Science and Technology (S & T II) that aims to enhance the knowledge and use of Rainwater Harvesting Irrigation (RWHI) Management for small-scale irrigation in rural drylands of sub-Saharan Africa. This will be achieved through the implementation of integrated theoretical and practical capacity-building, and the development of technology-transfer and demonstration projects in the field of RWHI. The Centre of Advanced Studies in Environmental Law and Policy (CASELAP) of the University of Nairobi, through this project, will develop into a regional Research and Technology Transfer Centre in RWHI management. In addition, CASELAP is developing a transnational network platform for cooperation and exchange of experience in RWHI management in sub-Saharan Africa.

Other institutions involved thus far include Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, HAW (Germany), University of Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Edward Mondlane University (Mozambique), University of Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe), International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Southern and Eastern African Rainwater Network/International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (SEARNET/ICRAF), and WaterAid. The network will comprise micro-enterprises, nongovernmental and public actors, academic/scientific institutions, and rural dryland communities, especially farmers, women and youth groups.

CASELAP participated in the 2014 ACP-EU Multi-Stakeholder Workshop in Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany.
