Agriculture, natural resources and rural development - Water-based natural resources management

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming

The objective of the TA is to prepare a feasibility study of a project to raise farm productivity and rural household income and improve the environment in the project area through integrated assistance in rural infrastructure rehabilitation, institutional strengthening, and improvement of agricultural production technologies and marketing. The Project will complement the assistance to be provided under the Agriculture Rehabilitation Project supported by ADB, which will be implemented beginning in 2003.

The tentative project scope encompasses (i) capacity building for proper operation, maintenance, and repair of irrigation and rural infrastructure; (ii) management of water resources; (iii) support of agricultural marketing; and (iv) enhanced farm management and technologies. Priority will be given to areas with higher incidence of poverty and areas where benefit-impacts will be sustainable.

A grant financed TA will accompany the loan-funded investments to advance government policy formulation and investment programming in the agriculture and natural resources sector.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The design of the proposed project will be in line with the interim operational strategy (IOS) for Tajikistan of 1998 and CSPU for 2003-2005, which focus ADB assistance on agriculture and infrastructure rehabilitation, with a veiw to reducing rural poverty.
