The project has six components: Component 1 initiates water sector reform. Component 2 finances irrigation and drainage sub-sector reforms. Component 3 pilots reform options for integrated water resources management at the sub-basin level and Component 4 pilots reform measures for sustainable and efficient operation and management of irrigation and drainage infrastructure. Specifically, the latter component rebuilds and modernizes irrigation and drainage systems based on community priorities; supports agricultural intensification and diversification through extension services, study tours, and other training; and pilots replicable management options, including transferring management responsibilites to water user associations. Component 5 initiates topographic surveys and environmental, social, and other assessments, and prepares feasibility studies for activities to be undertaken in a follow-up project. Component 6 assists the Project Activities Core Team (PACT) with its role in facilitating and guiding the implmeentation and monitoring of all project activities, ensuring synergy and coordination.
