    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.

    The overall objective of the On farm Irrigation Development in Old Lands (OFIDO) project is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and the empowerment of poor rural households through targeted interventions aiming to improve water use efficiency at farm levels and to increase the yields, productivity and income of smallholders and the poor. In order to draw lessons from the implementation of this project and to apply them to the national programme to modernize irrigation, FAO, upon request of the Government of Egypt, conducted an independent technical assessment to provide a comprehensive overview of the performance of improved irrigation systems in three governorates within the OFIDO project’s area of intervention, located in the north, centre and south of the country.

    The Western Basins in Afghanistan have significant potential for agricultural intensification. Decades of civil unrest have impeded maintenance and repairs to the existing irrigation systems of these basins, and the entire canal networks are in urgent need of rehabilitation and upgrading. Against this background, the project aimed to support the rehabilitation and upgrading of irrigation and water resources in Pashtun Zarqhundistrict, Hari Rudriver basin, in order to improve rural livelihoods and increase household incomes of farmers of this district. The project was part of the larger “Western Basins Water Resources Management Project”, funded by Asian Development Bank.
