Cambodia northwest irrigation sector project

The Northwest Irrigation Sector Project (NWISP) is designed to help reduce poverty in the poor and neglected rural areas of northwest Cambodia by developing irrigated agriculture. It will promote economic growth through enhanced agricultural production in rural areas in general and will reduce farmers' exposure to variability in crop yields and to food insecurity in more remote, disadvantaged, and poorer areas. The Project is formulated as a sector loan project and will finance subprojects that enhance irrigation schemes and other water control infrastructure in the provinces of Pursat, Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, and Siem Reap. The Project will adopt an integrated approach to irrigation development identifying/selecting schemes with the use of an integrated water resources management (IWRM) approach in a river basin context and then rehabilitating them.
