Command Area Development Project

Irrigation facilities existed in the project area but were under-utilized because of the lack of water distribution systems. The project aimed to increase food production, raise farm incomes and provide rural employment opportunities by improving irrigation facilities and the distribution of water to farms. Specific objectives of the project were to:

  • rehabilitate existing irrigation canals
  • provide new canal and farm ditch systems
  • create drainage and flood control systems
  • strengthen agricultural support services

The project also gave farmers the equipment and training capacity to maintain the improved irrigation facilities.
