Serbia - Additional Financing for the Irrigation and Drainage Rehabilitation Project : restructuring : Main report (English)

The development objectives of the Additional Financing for the Irrigation and Drainage Rehabilitation Project are to: a) improve the capacity for increased agricultural yields through support to high priority rehabilitation of drainage and irrigation infrastructure; b) reduce the risk of damage from flooding to land, crops, property, infrastructure as well as reducing risk of life loss from flooding in project areas; and c) improve water resources management and strengthen the associated water resource management institutions and policies. The extension is necessary to enable the borrower to complete the execution of the civil engineering works (flood control, drainage rehabilitation, and irrigation development schemes), which are currently being implemented or are in the project pipeline. In the past, in particular during calendar years 2008 and 2009, the project implementation suffered from a number of issues arising from the lengthy internal permitting procedures for civil work contracts, inadequate coordination between various borrowers' agencies, and inability to start activities under the institutional strengthening and capacity building component because of delays in adoption of the new water law by the Serbian Parliament. This will be the first extension of the project.
