Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Baguineda Irrigation Scheme Extension Study. The study aims at producing a blueprint for the development of 1500 ha of useful farm space in extension of the existing Banguineda scheme on the one hand, and at preparing a blueprint for strengthening and extending the main canal to secure the irrigation of existing or future schemes, on the otherhand. The study should also produce detailed sketches, concerning financial and economic feasibility of the project so defined. The project should be carried out in two phases over eleven months, including two periods of two months. The first phase should concentrate on the following reviews and analyses in close collaboration with the parties concerned. The second phase should take five months, including two months for the review and finalization of reports. At the end of each of these phases, a workshop reuniting together representatives of the population, OPAs, NGOs in the area, other donors, government officials and consultations should be organized to discuss proposals contained in the provisional report.
