The project consists in the development for irrigated farming of 7,934 ha, of which 5,221 ha will be under sprinkler irrigation and 2,713 ha under gravity irrigation. The development operations will consist in: the installation of irrigation structures involving civil and electromechanical works; the division of the area into parcels; the construction of roads and tracks; reafforestation; the establishment of wind-breaks; the installation of power lines; the provision of extension and supervisory structures; the institution of back-up measures; the provision of mobile irrigation equipment and irrigation hydrants; and the development of the left bank. The project will also carry out feasibility studies on the South Loukkos area.
The aim of the project is to improve the standard of living of farmers by raising agricultural productivity. It will help the country attain its production targets for sugar, milk, cereals, and oil by introducing crop diversification, which will be of immense benefit to the region. It will also enable productive use to be made of investments already made by the State in the area: the Oued Makhazine barrage and the dams and dykes built to protect Loukkos plains against floods.
The main beneficiaries are farmers in the project area.
