New Halfa Irrigation Rehabilitation Project

New Halfa Irrigation Rehabilitation Project

The New Halfa Irrigation Scheme was developed in the 1960s in the context of the resettlement of people who were displaced when Lake Nasser was formed. In later years, cultivation in the area had been declining and the scheme was increasingly failing to meet production demands. The rehabilitation project set out to increase sustainable agricultural production through the efficient use of available land, water and human resources. Some of the project’s aims included:

  • strengthening the institution managing the scheme
  • establishing an agricultural training centre
  • providing credit services
  • improving agricultural production and cropping patterns
  • maintaining roads and canals
