The present project is relative to the comprehensive study and project preparation for the Nubaria and Ismailia Canals. The study is critical to address serious issues confronting these two regions and to make recommendations. This study should also allow to provide viable solutions to reverse the physical deterioration and poor performance of canal infrastructure and to improve the operation and maintenance of the irrigation systems. The project should seek technically feasible and economically and socially viable solutions for efficient water control and system management in these two canals, concentrating on the main canal system only. The present study comprises pre-feasibility and feasibility level work, to include developing semi-detailed designs, bills of quantities, cost estimates and tender document preparation so that major investment operations for both Nubaria and Ismailia canals can follow immediately upon conclusion of the study.
The sector goal of the project is to contribute to the Integrated Water Resources Management Plan (IWRMP) by improving the efficiency & sustainability of the use of land and water resources in Egypt. The purpose of the study is to mobilize financial resources to reduce water shortage and logging in the Nubaria & Ismailia canal systems and to prepare technical proposals for major infrastructure investment.
The beneficiaries of the study are the people suffering from the problems faced in each of the West Nile Delta (Nubaria Canal area) and Ismailia Regions who will directly benefit from finding effective solutions to the problems faced by the two canals. It's estimated that 832,000 families in the Ismailia Canal command and 500,000 families in the Nubaria Canal command areas could directly benefit from the physical implementation of the Study recommendations.
