Short description: Terms of Reference for Conduction of Forum on Integrated Water Resources Management for Syrdarya river basin youth Tajikistan
The SDC funded NWRM Project Phase 3 aims at improving rural population livelihoods from irrigated agriculture as a result of enhanced irrigation under the reform of the water sector in Tajikistan in line with the basin and integrated water resources management. The primary stakeholders are the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources, the Agency of Land Reclamation and Irrigation, the Committee of Emergency Situations, the Committee of Environment Protection, the Sughd Oblast and District Local Governments, District Irrigation Agencies, and the Water User Associations. The project’s Impact Hypothesis is based on the assumption that the integrated water resources management in the Tajik Syr Darya Basin will lead to more efficient and sustainable use, protection and development of basin water resources w which will result in improved irrigation efficiency and decreased risks of water-related disasters, and finally improved rural livelihoods, especially the vulnerable groups, including the women and men.
The project will work along three outcomes, which are closely interlinked:
Outcome 1: The Parliament adopts the IWRM relevant elements of legislation and ensures the coherence of the legislative framework, and the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources coordinates and monitors the enforcement of this legislation;
Outcome 2 The Tajik Syr Darya (TSD) River Basin Organization (RBO), River Basin Council (RBC), and basin local authorities apply IWRM principles at the basin, sub-basin, and watershed levels;
Outcome 3: Farmers use irrigation water effectively, and WUAs and irrigation agencies manage the systems efficiently and sustainably in a long-term perspective.
This assignment falls mostly under the following project’s output:
Output 6: Priority KB WSMP DRR and CCA measures are implemented together with additional Aksu Isfana and Isfara IWSMPs measures, including across borders.
