Community-Based Irrigation Rehabilitation and Development in four provinces in Northern Afghanistan

Afghanistan

Titre : Community-Based Irrigation Rehabilitation and Development in four provinces in Northern Afghanistan

Pays : Afghanistan

Localisation : Baghlan, Balkh, Ghor, and Samangan provinces

Code projet : 36222-013

Secteur : Irrigation, Drainage, and Flood Protection

Date approbation : 06 Jul 2012

Description
The impact of the project is improved agricultural productivity in four target provinces in Northern Afghanistan, and the outcome is farming communities in the target provinces are better served with irrigation infrastructure. This will be achieved by rehabilitating at least 100 traditional small-scale irrigation systems at an estimated civil works cost of $40,000 per system. Improvement of traditional irrigation is a high priority in Afghanistan because of its key importance for community-based agricultural production, which is key to community livelihoods and poverty reduction. The project will be implemented through a community contracting system which will : (i) allow rural populations to manage the implementation of projects in their areas and increase local economic opportunities ; and (ii) create a sense of ownership and timely completion as procurement will be done locally with the maximum involvement of local communities. Women’s participation will be facilitated through a gender action plan (GAP), which will include lessons learnt from earlier projects. The GAP will be prepared in the first 3 months of the project. The project will be implemented over 48 months in four provinces : Ghor, Balkh, Samangan, and Baghlan

Type or Modality of Assistance : Grant
