Armenia - Irrigation Rehabilitation Project (English)

The objective of the Irrigation Rehabilitation Project is to assist Armenia in maintaining the level of irrigated agricultural production and improve the country's water resource management. The project is comprised of four main components: (a) rehabilitation of 12 irrigation schemes and the Ararat Valley groundwater network; (b) establishment of pilot projects for improved water distribution and establishment of water users' associations; (c) financing incremental operation and maintenance costs of the irrigation infrastructure until effective water users' associations are in place, and in the meantime to prevent further deterioration of the irrigation infrastructure; and (d) technical assistance, including establishment of a project implementation unit, assistance to update the water master plan, training, preparation of the next irrigation project, and assistance to improve irrigated crop production.
