Titre : Strengthening capacity for effective water and energy resources consumption in Navruz-yab irrigation channel in Yangiaryk district of Khorezm region (Uzbekistan)

Pays : Uzbekistan

Numéro projet : UZB/SGP/OP4/Y3/RAF/2009/21

Domaine : Climate Change Mitigation

Durée : 9/2009 – 2/2011

Bénéficiaire : Yangiaryk district Water Users Association

Présentation
The project has a tremendous potential for Uzbekistan. Most of our irrigation is made from channels where water is being pumped into. This practice requires a huge consumption of electricity for work of the pumps. This happens because gravity irrigation is seen as not a possible option as much of the water is wasted into infiltration if we elevate the level of channels so that the water can flow because of the gravity. The project will try to fix this problem by making cheap insulation for an irrigation channel for one Water Users Association. The insulation layer will be made out of plastic tape (sheet) that is put on the bottom and then covered by the layer of soil in a specific way. This will : in the first place make use of pumps irrelevant, and only for this specific channel we shall get rid of 4 big pumps, each consuming 60.000 KWt*h each irrigation season. Altogether the project will cut 149 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions just because of the pumps annually. On the other hand, because of the climate change, farmers get less and less water for their agricultural practices. irrigation system inefficiency exacerbates the problem by losing more that 70% of water into infiltration. This new system will allow for great economy of water resources and if proven viable, the project results will be extensively distributed among all water users association and decision makers on the ground.
