Groundwater Irrigation and Flood Rehabilitation Project

Groundwater Irrigation and Flood Rehabilitation Project

The Terai region has good potential for agricultural development and a reasonably robust marketing and communications network. Agricultural development of the region will help feed Nepal’s rapidly rising population. This project’s aims were to raise crop yields, improve farmer’s incomes and increase food security for the poor by providing irrigation systems. It also set out to repair damage to existing irrigation systems that were hit by the floods of July and August 1993, and to restore livelihoods to people living in the flooded areas.

The project offered an opportunity to research and test possible technical and institutional options for efficient and equitable development of groundwater irrigation.
