Long-term irrigation investment support in Afghanistan is restoring rural irrigation schemes and enhancing agricultural productivity

 TCI has long been involved in providing technical support to the World Bank’s irrigation projects in Afghanistan. Beginning with the Emergency Irrigation Rehabilitation Project (2003-2011), the predecessor to the current Irrigation Restoration and Development Project (2011-2017), TCI has supported FAO implementation of project operations through technical review and supervision of sub-project engineering design and construction, technical support and training for compliance with environmental and social safeguards, and various economic, social and other analyses for sub-project activities as requested.
