The expected impact of the proposed project is improve household income and health in the districts of Attock, Rawalpindi, Jehlum and Chakwal in the barani areas of Punjab province. These four districts were selected due to their high percentage of rainfed agriculture compared to other districts in the barani areas and their high potential for water storage development. The project's outcome is to increase crops and livestock productivity and households' access to domestic water supply. This will be obtained from the conversion of 11,500 hectares (ha) of rainfed agricultural land into irrigated land and the improvement of irrigation on 10,000 ha in existing systems. Two representatives' subprojects ("core subprojects") were selected to assess the Project's feasibility with regards to technical, social, financial and economic aspects as well as to social and environmental safeguards.
