Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

India requires irrigation water use efficiency and productivity improvement. Water plays a critical role in India's food security and welfare of the rural poor as 84% of all water withdrawals are dedicated to agriculture and 42% of all agricultural land is irrigated. India benefits from only 4% of the world's renewable fresh water but has 16% of the world's population. With intense urbanization and industrialization, the need for water from the nonagriculture sector is fast increasing and water shortage is becoming a major concern for industries. At the same time, population growth and change in dietary habits require continued growth in agricultural production. By 2050, annual water availability per capita in India is expected to drop from 1,530 cubic meters to 1,140 cubic meters, indicating severe water stress. The current average irrigation water use efficiency of 38% points towards the need for serious performance improvement in this sector. The productivity of irrigation water is further hampered by low crop yields and cultivation of low- value crops. Therefore, most of India's utilized water not only supports activities with low economic value but is also inefficiently used. In the meantime, water shortages are constraining water-dependent power production and the development of high-value industries that are required to fuel the country's economic growth. These problems will worsen in the future with the projected impacts of population and economic growth, and with climate change, which will increase both irrigation water demand and uncertainty around the reliability of water resources.

Irrigation modernization is a key strategy to reducing water wastage. The Government of India recognizes the situation. Both the Three Year Action Agenda (2017 2018 to 2019 2020) and the 2015 Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana program have acknowledged the necessity to improve water use efficiency in irrigation. In 2014, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded the Scoping Study for a National Water Use Efficiency Improvement Support Program. The study identified the following three main causes for low water use efficiency: (i) inadequate irrigation and drainage infrastructure because of faulty designs and lack of maintenance; (ii) inadequate management, operation and maintenance (MOM) of the irrigation systems; and (iii) inadequate capacity building and training services. The study highlights the need to modernize the design and management of major- and medium-sized irrigation (MMI) schemes to reduce system inefficiencies and substantially improve water delivery services to farmers. It proposed a framework for assessing and improving water use efficiency on MMI schemes. Under a subsequent regional technical assistance, the framework was successfully pilot tested on such schemes within South Asia. The study also developed comprehensive modernization strategies for existing irrigation systems and recommended a tailored investment plan for the SSIP.
