The overall project development objective (PDO) is to improve water productivity i.e. producing more crop per drop. It will be achieved through increasing delivery efficiency, adopting improved irrigation practices, promoting crop diversification, and effective application of non-water inputs. The PDO would contribute to increased agricultural production, more employment opportunities in rural areas, higher incomes from the farming, better living standards of the farmers, and improved environment.
