Pakistan - Left Bank Outfall Drain (Stage I) Project (English)

The eight-year project will be the first stage of a major drainage program in Sind Province to reverse the deterioration of the land resource base caused by waterlogging and salinity. Integrated irrigation, drainage, and water management measures will permit increased cropping intensities and a reduction in abandoned land in an area of more than 0.5 million ha. Principal project components include: (a) completion of a 300 km outfall drain and remodelling of existing drains to dispose of saline effluent to the Arabian Sea; (b) installation of a surface and subsurface drainage network in the three subareas; and (c) installation of a power distribution system to supply the drainage tubewells and drain pumps. The project further provides for: (d) introduction of on-farm water management practices including renovation of about 920 watercourses and precision land levelling; (e) remodelling of the Nara and Jamrao Canals, as well as construction of the Chotiari Reservoir, to provide supplemental irrigation water for the project area. Finally, the project includes; (f) technical assistance for project design and implementation.
