Small Scale Flood Control, Drainage and Irrigation Project

Small-Scale Flood Control, Drainage and Irrigation Project

In this project IFAD worked with the Government of Bangladesh to increase food grain production, farm incomes and rural employment opportunities. The main activities supported by the project were designed to reduce the depth, intensity and incidence of flooding in order to increase crop yields from one to two harvests per year and to make those harvests more abundant. The project also introduced a new rice variety that produced higher yields. In addition, improved farm technology and management practices were implemented.
