    The Farm-level Irrigation Modernization Project (co-financedby the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development,the French Development Agency and the Government of Egypt)aimed to increase agricultural productivity and improve accessto higher-quality water on up to 200 000 feddans (80 000 ha) inthe command areas of Mahmoudia in Beheira Governorate, andthe Manaifa and Meet Yazid main canals in Kafr-el-Sheikh Governoratein the Nile Delta. Given the lack of adequate technical staff forsupervision of the project’s work and quality control, a technical auditwas implemented to review and assess the planning, technical designand implementation of the interventions carried out under theFarm-level Irrigation Modernization Project. Its aim was to helpensure better development outcomes for the ultimate beneficiariesof the original irrigation project, but also wiser use of resourcesby project planners, designers and implementers in the fieldof agriculture water management.

    Support Sustainable Water Management and Irrigation Modernization for Newly Reclaimed Areas - TCP/EGY/3604 2020
    Also available in:

    A key challenge for the agriculture sector in Egypt is to feed its growing population in the context of increasing demand on the finite water resources and a trade deficit. Horizontal expansion into new land in the desert has long been strategic in meeting this challenge. Major land reclamation activities have been initiated under the National Reclamation Project, with the objective of increasing agricultural land area by two percent, making agricultural land nine percent of the total area of Egypt. These activities aim to sustainably use the groundwater resources of the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer and other GW systems in different parts of Egypt to irrigate an area of up to 1.5 million feddan (630 000 ha). To this end, the Government of Egypt requested FAO support to the land reclamation programme. Within the Regional Initiative on Water Scarcity, FAO would pilot a data and information management system, based on monitoring and remote sensing (RS) data to assist MWRI and MALR to monitor water consumption and water productivity in the newly reclaimed areas.

    No results found.

    This report analyzes the value chain and presents a food loss assessment of tomato crop in Nubaria District and Sharqia Governorate, as part of the project “Food Loss and Waste Reduction and Value Chain Development for Food Security in Egypt and Tunisia” implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation (MALR) with funding from the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation. It aims to deepen understanding of the tomatoes value chain and the particular problem of food loss, in order to promote sustainable, market-based solutions that respond to the needs of small-scale holders.
