The objective of Irrigation and Water Resource Management Project (IWRMP) is to improve irrigated agriculture productivity and management of selected irrigation schemes, and enhance institutional capacity for integrated water resources management. The primary target beneficiary groups of the project are the water users of the selected irrigation schemes. Key indicators proposed to measure the achievement of the Project Development Objective (PDO) are: increase in productivity of selected (main) crops; increase in cropping intensity; resources raised and O&M expenditures incurred by water user groups; extent of “satisfaction”- as defined through structured score cards- of water users with the irrigation service delivery; preparation (for government approval and enactment) of an integrated water resources policy and appropriate regulatory framework; and establishment of a national water resource database.
The project has four components: component A addresses the improvement of irrigation facilities in selected FMIS in mountains, hills and Terai areas and development of groundwater irrigation in the Terai; component B is to improve service performance and service delivery of selected public irrigation schemes in the Terai by completing and consolidating the IMT process; component C provides strengthening of relevant institutions for water resources management and component D deals with increase in production, productivity and profitability of irrigated agriculture.
