The objective of the proposed Project is to improve agricultural performance of poorer communities through sustainable improvements in irrigation, better drainage, watershed protection and flood protection, within a framework of integrated water resource management in the Red River basin. The Project scope has been organized into two parts to address this objective. Part A includes (a) capacity building for the Red River Basin Organization, (b) public awareness and education programs, (c) pilot water licensing systems, (d) water quality monitoring network, and (e) project management support. Part A is expected to receive grant financing from the Government of Netherlands in the amount of approximately $9.5 million. It will address aspects related to integrated water resource management and associated institution-building.
