The Government of Swaziland received a € 910,000 grant to carry out the preparatory work necessary for the implementation of the Lower Usuthu Smallholder Irrigation Project (LUSIP)-Phase II. This entails the preparation of the feasibility studies, detailed designs and tender documents required for the implementation of the LUSIP II infrastructure investments, as well as the mobilisation of funds required for the implementation of LUSIP II infrastructure investments. The improvement of agricultural productivity is part of the country’s strategy to increase food and economic security to fight extreme poverty.
The objectives of the study are the following: i) the preparation of the feasibility studies, detailed designs and tender documents required for the implementation of the LUSIP II infrastructure investments and ii) the mobilisation of funds required for the implementation of LUSIP II infrastructure investments.
The target population of the LUSIP II project is the approximately 10,000 poor rural people living in three chiefdoms, located within the boundaries of the Swazi Nation Land to be developed under Phase II of LUSIP, in the Matata irrigation command area. Amongst the smallholder sugarcane farmers in the LUSIP area, there are about 20% female farm holders who will be equally and fairly represented in all project support services.
