Project Description
According to ADB website, The proposed Water Resources Management in the Pyanj River basin (PRB) Project will improve institutional and physical capacities of water resources management (WRM) system in PRB of southern Tajikistan, and it will: (i) establish a PRB organization, council, and Joint PRB committee, and develop a PRB management plan; (ii) modernize and climate-proof the Chubek Irrigation System (CIS); and (iii) improve farm and water use management capacities. The impacts of the project will be irrigated land in good condition and food security increased by 2020 and efficiency of water-resources use increased by 2020. Further, the project will reflect the following lessons learnt from previous ADB financed irrigation project: (i) focus should be on full rather than partial rehabilitation for effective system performance; (ii) projects dispersed over a broad geographic area are hard to implement and have high administrative burdens; (iii) improving on-farm agricultural productivity is important for project sustainability and an appropriate implementing partner should be chosen for the improvement; and (iv) sufficient funds should be raised through water use levies or government contributions to ensure the sustainability of WUAs and coverage of O&M costs.
