Uzbekistan: Water Resources Management Sector Project

WRMSP - with farmers in the field

15.02.2010 - 31.12.2015

In Uzbekistan agricultural production almost entirely depends on irrigation. The country is therefore compelled to using existing water resources much more efficiently, especially in irrigation, which consumes over 90% of the water. After the collapse of the Soviet Union the region inherited huge irrigation schemes, and the associated storage facilities were all managed centrally at that time. The newly independent states inherited a system of inefficient water management, seriously deteriorated infrastructure and poor institutional settings all coupled with the prevailing arid geo-climatic features of the region.
