Pabna Irrigation and Rural Development Project

Pabna Irrigation and Rural Development Project

This, IFAD's first project in Bangladesh, was created to improve the basic infrastructure of one of the most important and vulnerable agricultural areas in the heart of the country. It was designed to increase agricultural production, generate employment and improve farmers' living conditions by providing flood embankments, improving existing channels and installing drainage pumps to protect an area of about 185,000 ha from annual flooding.
