The project will increase agricultural productivity in the Panj-Amu River Basin through improving access and use of water at farm, scheme and river levels. Objectives will be achieved through three outputs:
Output 1 (managed by MEW) - Water allocation and availability improved: works at main canal level; setting-up and strengthening water user associations (WUAs); building the capacity of MEW, River Basin Agency (RBA) and Sub-basin Agencies (SBAs).
Output 2 (managed by MAIL) - Command areas enhanced: secondary and tertiary canal works; setting-up and strengthening irrigation associations (IAs); improving on-farm water management and agronomic techniques.
Output 3 (managed by MAIL) - Watersheds properly managed and protected: restoration and protection of watershed and/or rangeland sites including creation of catchment management associations.
