Bhima Command Area Development Project

Bhima Command Area Development Project

 

This project in the Solapur district of Maharashtra state brought 50,000 ha of land under irrigation. Works included the construction of the Ujjani Dam and 300 km of link roads. Yields of crops such as jowar (Indian millet) more than doubled, and the production of groundnut tripled. Farmers joined organizations to run and maintain the irrigation networks, and a system of rotational water-supply management distributed water in an equitable and timely manner.

Cofinanced by IFAD and the World Bank, the project aimed to reduce poverty by increasing agricultural production and generating employment. Among its objectives were the social and economic development of scheduled castes and tribal people, the poorest people in the region.
