Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

India's irrigation sector has received much greater attention from development planners as the result of the prolonged drought in early 2000s, increasing water stress with competing water use in many river basins, and its high stake in promoting agriculture and rural development as prioritized under the National Common Minimum Programme. The Government's revised National Water Policy 2002 and the Tenth Five Year Plan have given high priority to (i) expanding irrigated areas through accelerated completion of unfinished irrigation schemes, (ii) enhancing the utilization of existing irrigation schemes, and (iii) promoting institutional reforms of state irrigation departments to adopt PIM, and IWRM of scarce resources on the basis of river basins.

Within this context, ADB's country strategy is placing increased emphasis on pro-poor growth with extension of support for agricluture and rural development sectors. The proposed loan is consistent with the strategy, and intends to establish a model for substantially enhancing the productivity and sustainability of existing irrigation systems with necessary institutional reforms for PIM and IWRM.
