Due to the challenges faced by Georgia’s agriculture sector, the government of Georgia opted to invest into the restoration of irrigation infrastructure of the country. Th purpose of this decision is to support the development of agriculture infrastructure within the country for increasing efficiency and productivity in farming.

With financial support from the World Bank, the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture of Georgia is rehabilitating and reconstructing secondary, tertiary and quaternary irrigation networks of the selected priority irrigation schemes under the ongoing Irrigation and Land Market Development Project.

Design of rehabilitation works currently is underway. Project environmental and social risks are assessed and found to be moderate. It is expected that the Project interventions will not have negative impact outside of the construction sites. The impacts will be localized, temporary and easy to minimize by applying relevant mitigation measures. Environmental and social mitigation measures for the Project activities laid out in the Environmental and Social Management Plans.
