Project Description
The Water Efficiency Improvement in Drought Affected Provinces (the project) aims to improve agriculture water productivity (crop per drop) by increasing water use efficiency in irrigated agriculture in five drought affected provinces in the Central Highland and South Central Coastal Regions: Binh Thuan, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, Khanh Hoa, and Ninh Thuan. The impact of the project is productivity and competitiveness, climate resilience and disaster preparedness in the agriculture sector enhanced in line with the government's ARP. The outcome is water productivity of irrigated agriculture in five drought affected provinces of the Central Highland and South Central Coastal Regions improved. The outputs are: (i) delivery of irrigation management services improved; (ii) modernized and climate resilient irrigation systems developed; and (iii) improved on-farm water management practices adopted. Under Output 1, the project will support participating IMCs and WUGs to adopt modernized irrigation management practices and more sustainable O&M; measures, which will improve the sustainability and returns on public investments and strengthen climate change response measures. Output 2 will support modernization of eight irrigation systems serving a command area of around 33,500 ha planted primarily in high value crops. Modernizing will entail measures such as improved conveyance, flow regulating, and monitoring systems. Output 3 will support demonstrations of innovative on-farm water-saving irrigation solutions. The project will also attract private investors to invest in large scale agriculture production and processing in designated high-tech agriculture zones'. Such investments will increase the revenue generating potential of the project investment.
