Romania Irrigation Rehabilitation and Reform Project, launched in 2003, aims to achieve more economic and equitable use of irrigation water for agricultural production through changes in farmers’ and related institutions’ behavior, while increasing agricultural productivity in the project area. Project benefits include increased agricultural production and higher incomes for farmers because of improved irrigation services; increased social cohesion through community-based management of irrigation systems; and reduced agriculture related pollution through improved environmental management and reduction of seepage losses. The rehabilitation of the main schemes would directly benefit approximately 40,000 farming families and workers in agricultural associations.
