Project Objectives


The overarching objective of the project is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of irrigation water distribution in three AWBs (Ghotki, Nara and Left Bank), particularly with respect to measures of reliability, equity and user satisfaction. This would be achieved by: (a) deepening and broadening the institutional reforms that are already underway in Sindh; (b) improving the irrigation system in a systematic way covering key hydraulic infrastructure, main and branch canals, and distributaries and minors; and (c) enhancing long-term sustainability of irrigation system through participatory irrigation management for improving operation and maintenance of the system and cost recovery. The project also aims to undertake a diagnostic study and designing of works for Sukkur and Guddu Barrages to make them safe for next 50 years and prepare a Master Plan for flood and drainage management for Left Bank of River Indus.
