Description

This provides the final consultant report and addendum for the Western Basins Water Resources Management and Irrigated Agriculture Development Project in Afghanistan.

The Western Basins Project (WBP) seeks to address key issues related to water use and management primarily in the Hari Rud catchment/watershed with possible further activities in the Murghab River valley. The two rivers constitute Afghanistan’s Western Basin for planning and future development of water resources. In the longer term, a River Basin Authority will be built around the watershed boundaries. This report is the culmination of the work of the consultants engaged to undertake the design of the WBP. 

After the circulation of the draft final report the ADB Fact Finding Mission (FFM) proposed a number of recommendations to improve the estimate of with and without-project benefits in the core Sub project areas. The PPTA has responded to these recommendations and the changes resulting from them are reported in the addendum.
