    The FAO and JICA-funded project “Capacity Development of the Irrigation Department of the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan” was designed to improve the capacity of the Irrigation Department to formulate, implement, monitor and evaluate agriculture irrigation development projects. The results of this Final Evaluation set a sound foundation for the management of the irrigation sector as it contributed to enhance Irrigation Department’s staff skills, knowledge and awareness, as well as to develop an Irrigation Database useful to support the Department’s decision-making process. The project also contributed to the policy dialogue setting the basis for a future institutional transformation and governance development. This could be achieved in the long-term through further dedicated interventions which could also support the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock in clarifying the roles and responsibilities for all water management-related institutions, as well as in developing and including a gender approach in its interventions.

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

    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.

    Agriculture is crucial for the national economy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. Adoption of new strategies for agriculture monitoring, rural land use planning, and management are urgently required to reduce hunger and poverty and to assure sustainable food and feed production for future generations. The availability of reliable information on natural resources and agriculture for its monitoring and analysis is indispensable to the development and implementation of such strategies. For this purpose the project “Strengthening Afghanistan Institutions’ Capacity for the Assessment of Agriculture Production and Scenario Development” (GCP/AFG/087/EC), funded by the European Union (EU), is implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Within the context of this project, FAO and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) are developing a National Agro-Ecological Zoning activity (NAEZ) in Afghanistan. This Atlas is the first of two books and provides the collected information and maps of the country based on the agro-climatic Indicators.
