Project Name AF Irrigation Restoration and Development Project
Project Detail The development objective of the Irrigation Restoration and Development Project for Afghanistan is to improve access to irrigation in targeted areas and strengthen capacity for water resources management. The restructuring includes changing the project development objective (PDO) and triggering two new safeguards policies: pest management (OP 4.09) and physical cultural resources (OP/BP 4.11). The project restructuring will also include revision of the results framework, extension of the closing date by three years to December 31, 2020, revisions to project components and costs, and update of disbursement estimates and implementation schedule. An additional financing of United States (U.S.) 70 million dollars is requested to: (i) address cost overruns in the rehabilitation of irrigation schemes; (ii) carry out river bank protection and dam safety works, which were found to be of high priority; and (iii) scale up technical assistance on policy improvement and institutional strengthening activities on broader water resources management (WRM) issues.
