About World Bank ICRP Project:

The Irrigation for
Climate Resilience Project (ICRP) aims to support the Government of Uganda
(GoU) in the shift towards more resilient agriculture through the development
of sustainable irrigation services. The project intends to address Uganda’s
climate change vulnerabilities by: (i) promoting adoption of irrigation by
small farmers, in synergy with other agriculture inputs and technologies; (ii)
increasing water storage capacity; (iii) promoting drainage; and (iv) promoting
sustainable catchment management. Through the introduction of irrigation
services, combined to the provision of extension services and facilitated
access to agri-inputs, farmers are expected to record more stable and higher
yields, increase intensification (by cropping also during the dry season), and
diversification (by introducing higher value crops). This change will be pulled
by the market, with irrigation becoming the anchor for stronger producer
organizations and development of value chains. The project recognizes the need
to explore a range of irrigation models adapted to local needs.
