Peru - Sierra Irrigation Project (English)

The objective of the Sierra Irrigation Project for Peru is to contribute to increasing agricultural production and productivity in targeted areas of the Sierra. There are five components to the project, the first component being modernization and rehabilitation of collective irrigation. This component will finance pre-investment studies and design, execution and supervision of subprojects to support eligible Water Users' Organization (WUO) to improve their water supply service to farmers, through the modernization or rehabilitation of collective irrigation systems, including, inter alia: water intakes improvement; canal improvement; and construction and rehabilitation of small water regulation reservoirs. The second component is the irrigation technology improvement. This component will finance pre-investment studies and design, execution and supervision of subprojects to support eligible farmers groups, and to increase irrigation performance at the farm level through the installation of improved on-farm irrigation systems. The third component is the capacity building and support to production and marketing. The fourth component is the formalization of water rights and national water rights administrative registry. Finally, the fifth component is the project implementation support. This component will support the provision of technical assistance, training, and acquisition and utilization of equipment to Irrigation Subsector Project (PSI) for: (a) the administration, monitoring, (including the base line study), evaluation and auditing of the project; and (b) the carrying out of awareness raising campaigns for all Sierra Water Users' Association (WUAs) on the implication of the new water law and on improved water management practices.
