The objective of the Xinjiang Turfan Water Conservation Project for China is to improve regional on-farm water infrastructures and focus on relevant software development, so as to promote sustainable water resources development and utilization and sound economic and social development of Turfan prefecture. Negative impacts and their mitigation measures are: 1) the reservoirs could store the flood water, to avoid disasters and waste of water, solve the seasonal shortage of irrigation water, and meet the demand of Turfan prefecture to develop industry and urban area; 2) canal lining could reduce the waste of water evaporation and leakage, to have more communities, esp. in the lower reaches and channel tails reduce their dependence on underground water wells; plus the field water-saving engineers, to have the water fee and electricity costs reduced in all the irrigation areas; 3) the village with Kariz project will improve its supply of irrigation and drinking water, but also have such a long historic wisdom of Uygur be sustained; and 4) after the irrigation water supply is improved, farmers could adjust their cropping pattern, to develop more high-profitable crops of grape, melons, etc.; the labor inputs to irrigation management could be reduced, to increase the migration or commuters for wage labor or develop the service industry.
