Project Description
The impact of the project will be ecological and sustainable development in Guizhou and replication of high efficiency water utilization for rocky desertification management demonstrated in Guizhou to other areas in the southwest Karst region of the People's Republic of China . The outcome of the project will be demonstration of high efficiency water utilization for rocky desertification management in Guizhou. The following tentative outputs will be reconsidered and modified as necessary during project preparation. Output 1: Water resources development and high efficiency water utilization for rocky desertification areas. This output will include (i) water resources development, including construction of (a) Pingshan and Pingqiao reservoirs, and (b) small water storage structures; (ii) introduction of high efficiency irrigation and water supply systems, including (a) construction of facilities for the systems and capacity development for utilization of the facilities, and (b) institutional development for high efficiency water utilization; and (iii) introduction of water saving agriculture, including (a) a pilot project, (b) micro financing to famers and/or firms, and (c) capacity development. Output 2: Ecological restoration and conservation in rocky desertification areas. This output will include (i) water and soil conservation, including (a) tree planting by communities, and (b) construction of soil erosion prevention structures; (ii) integrated ecological restoration and conservation in rocky desertification areas (e.g. prohibition of tree cutting, patrol to prevent tree cutting, maintenance and treatment of planted trees, monitoring of soil erosion and inflow into rivers, etc.); and (iii) establishment of eco-compensation mechanism for Pingshan and Pingqiao reservoirs. Project management. A project management office will monitor and evaluate project impact, outcome, and outputs using a project performance management system. The project will provide the Guizhou provincial government and implementing agencies with consultants and office equipment for project management. Capacity development for project management will be conducted.
