Sundarban Development Project

Sundarban Development Project

The project’s goals were to improve agricultural production potential in the south-east part of West Bengal state during the wet and dry seasons. The IFAD-funded project, cofinanced by the World Bank, supported activities focused on improving drainage and water control for wet season crops, expanding irrigation facilities for dry season crops and initiating pilot schemes for forestry development.

Project activities also included agricultural credit for farmers, training and cooperatives and improved transportation facilities and marketing infrastructure. The Sundarban project achieved 91 per cent of its drainage and irrigation targets.
