The project area covers 48 counties, which are characterized by the prevalence of low and medium agriculture productivity; high risk and occurrence of soil erosion; high levels of agriculture NPS pollution; lack of irrigation systems; limited farm access roads; and are in need for modernization and were selected based on geographical, financial, environmental and social criteria.

  • Modern farming systems applied;
  • Agriculture nonpoint source pollution reduced; and
  • Institutional capacity and coordination strengthened.

These outputs will result in the following outcome: sustainable and modern agriculture production systems established in the participating project provinces. In summary, the project aims to improve environmental protection, rehabilitation, and management of the Yangtze River.
