On-farm Irrigation Development Project in Oldlands

This project aims to establish mechanisms ensuring the efficient use of water resources, which are threatened by climate change, population growth, industrialization, increasing pollution and poor water management.
In response to these issues, the project aims to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers cultivating an average of 3 feddans of land, as well as landless labourers, unemployed young people and women-headed households. Project investments are expected to generate seasonal and part-time work for more than 21,000 poor rural men and women in the Upper Egypt governorates of Assiut, Qena and Sohag, and the Lower Egypt governorates of Kafr El-Sheikh and Beheira.
Project activities focus on:
  • Setting up and training about 230 new water users' associations to ensure
  • Rehabilitation of irrigation infrastructure at the farm level that will serve around 12,000 hectares of land
  • Introduction of an improved water management system
  • Training for marketing associations so that they can enhance their technical, marketing and managerial abilities, as well as their bargaining power to deal with traders and exporters
  • Promoting employment and income-generation by supporting small businesses and microenterprises.
