Uganda - Agricultural value chain development programme (AVCP) – Project 1 - ARAP Summary
The infrastructure development component of the Agriculture Value Chain Development Program-Project 1 will enable the development of the Achomai/Sironko irrigation scheme located in Bukedeya/Bulambuli Districts. Feasibility studies and engineering designs of the irrigation scheme were prepared by the Government of Uganda (GoU) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The irrigation infrastructure includes head works, canal and drainage network, on farm development, flood protection dyke, and on farm road network. With the development of the proposed scheme smallholder farmers in the project area will transform from climate dependent rain-fed farming to a more sustainable commercial oriented agriculture.
