In support of the effective implementation of Andhra Pradesh Farmers Management of Irrigation Systems (APFMIS) act and help in bringing reforms in the sector, Government of Andhra Pradesh through the Irrigation and Command Area Development Department (I&CAD) has approached the World Bank for assistance to initiate the Andhra Pradesh Water Sector Improvement Project (APWSP), with the objective of strengthening the state's irrigation capacity for multi-sectoral planning, development and management of water resources and also to improve the irrigation service delivery, water conveyance efficiency and productivity of irrigated agriculture. This will ultimately help improve the irrigation systems in the State to boost up the water sector performance and efficiency of the system resulting in enhancing the benefits to society, particularly farmers and their families, majority of whom are still poor. The APWSP will focus on the entire Nagarjuna Sagar command in the state of Andhra Pradesh to undertake institutional restructuring and capacity building of key water management agencies, to improve irrigation water service delivery and management, increase the knowledge base of the water sector and support project management and monitoring activities.
