Project General Description

The present project concerns the preparation of Improved Water Control and Management System for Pandamatenga Area. It's initiated because the geometric design and environmental impact assessment (EIA) report produced in 2003 for water control and management systems need to be updated and to include an additional 2,500 ha. The project consists of three main activity components: (i) Water Drainage Systems: Geometric design of water control and drainage system for an area of 2,500 ha; (ii) Water Control and Management Initiatives: This includes training of 20 Government staff and 266 farmers in water control techniques and water management; provision of scientific equipment related to soil testing and cartographical survey and enhancing capacities of the Research and Extension departments of the MOA; (iii) Ecosystem Conservation: Activities here include preparation of EIA for the supplementary 2,500 ha; updating the EIA for the 25,074 ha; as well as implementing associated ESMPs for the full development area of 27,574 ha.

Project Objectives

The sector goal of the project is to contribute to the implementation of the water management component of the National Master Plan for Arable Agriculture and Dairy Development (NAMPAADD) Plan. The objective is the preparation of technical reports for an investment proposal.


The direct beneficiaries of the project are farmers and Government institutions involved in the implementation and exploitation of the Pandamatenga Agricultural Infrastructure Development Project (PAIDP). These include 266 farming households (including 33 female-headed households) in Pandamatenga, made up of 245 farming households classified as traditional; and 21 farming households classified as large scale that would all benefit from improved water control systems and better production management. The MOA should also benefit from human resource development.
