This regional research and development technical assistance (TA) will support the identification, assessment, and design of new investments for more sustainable, water efficient irrigated agriculture. The TA was prepared in consultation with ADB's South Asia Regional Department, including the Resident Missions. The TA is consistent with ADB's Strategy 2020, which supports sustainable management of natural resources and investments in water systems and other essential public services, particularly those that benefit the poor. The TA responds directly to ADB's Operational Plan for Sustainable Food Security and ADB's Water Operational Plan for 2011-2020, which call for improving the productivity and efficiency of water use through (i) investing in modern irrigation infrastructure; (ii) adopting enabling policies that correctly price the opportunity cost of water; and (iii) strengthening institutions for more efficient and sustainable water management.
