Pakistan - Khyber Pakhthunkhwa Irrigated Agriculture Improvement Project : Indigenous Peoples Plan : Indigenous Peoples Plan Framework (Inglês)

The development objective of the Khyber Pakhthunkhwa Irrigated Agriculture Improvement Project for Pakistan is to improve the performance of irrigated agriculture for farmers in the project area. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) focusing on strengthening the functions of the ecosystems and strengthening them for climate change resilience, food security, and disaster risk reduction; (2) an analysis at the ecosystem and watershed levels is required for a project that minimizes negative impacts and creates sustainable and climate-change proof livelihood; (3) hydrological impacts will be re-examined, and no rehabilitation that can have negative effects on the sacred lakes and springs will be undertaken; (4) schemes to rehabilitate irrigation systems must incorporate flood control functions; (5) rehabilitation will be conducted by using local knowledge and material for civil works as much as possible so as to reaffirm their culture, in ensure ownership and to minimize influx of labor from outside; and (6) improvement in water use efficiency will integrate agricultural techniques: mulching, green manure, cover crops, appropriate choice of crops, and agroforestry.
