I3: Growing interest in a growing world The Millennium Challenge Corporation, CATIE, and the University of Idaho have teamed up to bring aid to those living in El Salvador through superior irrigation practices and management. The project will target 10 irrigations systems, 5 existing and 5 new, in the Metapan and La Palma areas of El Salvador. A focus will also be placed on water management and efficient water infrastructure. Team I3 will assist in the development of new irrigation practices and designs, with future students implementing this knowledge.

Through the continuing efforts of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, CATIE, and University of Idaho, effective irrigation management and implementation will be realized for the people of El Salvador.
