Resumo:  The semiarid tropics in Northeast Brazil occupy an area of 1.149.000 square kilometers and contain 24 million inhabitants. Most of the people are dependent on subsistence farming characterized by small land holdings, limited financial resources and productivity that is both unstable and low. Natural resources are limiting factors. Rainfall is highly variable and poor soil predominate. The Center for Agricultural Research in the Semi-Arid Tropics was established by the Government of Brazil to seek to change the low quality of life endured by the residents of the Northeast Region. A comprehensive program and improve small-scale water management in the region is underway there. Components under study include runoff inducement, microcatchment water harvesting, re cession farming, life-saving irrigation, pot (pitcher) irrigation and cisterns for drinking water. Significant technical achievements have resulted to date. The need to improve technology transfer has been recognized.
