    Improving irrigation systems and management in Afghanistan - GCP/AFG/078/JCA 2019

    No results found.

    Agriculture is the backbone of Afghan economy. However, its agriculture sector is highly dependent on irrigation water management. Given that the productivity of rainfedcultivation is very low, most of the production comes from irrigated agriculture. The rehabilitation and modernization of irrigation systems and improvement of their efficiency was deemed crucial for sustainable development and the stability of the country. The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL), through its Irrigation Directorate (ID), plays a key role in this process. The project, which was part of a bigger project called Capacity Development and Institutional Strengthening (CDIS) funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), aimed to increase the capacity of ID in formulating agricultural development projects and implementing them.

    The Emergency Irrigation Rehabilitation Project (EIRP)-UTF/AFG/035/AFG started in April 2004 and concluded in December 2011. The project was funded by the World Bank (WB) through one credit and three grants provided to the Government of Afghanistan (GoA) for implementation through the Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW). The project is supported with technical assistance (TA) provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN). EIRP finished on 31 December 2011 and is succeeded by the, Irrigation Reconstruction and Development Project (IRDP)-UTF/AFG/070/AFG, which is already ongoing with another WB grant.

    In Lebanon, like in many places in the world, adequate and reliable management and collection of waste have become increasingly complex and problematic. This issue anticipates cascading and spill-over effect on livelihood, environment, and agriculture. The main-occurring scenario is mostly correlated to the involuntarily waste disposal into irrigation canal and their consequent accumulation through villages and ultimately the sea. The enhancement of the environmental performance of the irrigation systems in Lebanon, therefore, urgently requires the rehabilitation of the irrigation canals and the proper removal of solid waste that they contain. In this context, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with the North Lebanon Water Establishment (NLWE), which represents the Ministry of Water and Energy, is implementing a project titled “Rehabilitation and waste management of El-Bared canal irrigation system to reduce source-to-sea pollution and improve livelihoods in the Akkar Region of Lebanon”, financed by the Government of Norway. The objective of the project is to determine a direct impact in terms of minimizing the discharge of waste from El-Bared system in Lebanon to the Mediterranean Sea, so to improve the livelihoods of the people depending on the system through rehabilitation of irrigation canal system, solid waste disposal, and improved agricultural output and job creation.
