3 3 I. Overview

4 OverviewOverview 4 Irrigation is important and necessary for the development of Agriculture and forestry. In the past, the Government of Lao PDR has allocated huge investment funds to the development of irrigation aiming to secure the supply of water to agriculture and thus to achieve its goals, as well as the implementation of 6 th National Social Economic Development Plan. Irrigation projects have been improved, upgraded, constructed, renewed and repaired step by step. At the same time, the irrigation goals are set for for supplying water up to 300,000 ha during raining season and 200,000 ha during dry season.

20 20 IV. Plan for 2015

21 21 Direction of Irrigation sector from now till 2015 Irrigation is important and necessary for the development of Agriculture and forestry. Lao PDR has Mekong river flows from North to South, with many braches and has many abundant rivers, we have to protect together and making use of them into the social – economic development and to achieve target numbers of agriculture and forestry from now to 2015 as well as 2020.

22 Overall direction of irrigation development from now to 2015 (1) 22 1.Promote awareness to villagers, at all levels to know the importance of water; 2.In 2015 – with production areas of 1,040,000 ha, of those, dry season rice - 740,000 ha, Raining season rice 200,000 ha; 3.Search for potential of water sources to develop irrigation without pumping as priority and allocating these project for annual budget plan; 4.Actively research to solve or manage problems in the zones regularly experiencing drought and floods.

23 Overall direction of irrigation development from now to 2015 (2) Overall direction of irrigation development from now to 2015 (2) 23 5.Survey, research and design some potential project for the benefit of production and small scale electricity power, in collaboration with Ministry of Energy and Mine and use the water from hydropower dams for agricultural production; 6.Conserve water sources to maintain natural resources by constructing small, medium and large scale catchments; 7.Develop irrigation strategy and plan.

24 Targets ( ) 24 1.Maintaining, repairing irrigation infrastructure: water catchment, overflow of spillway weir, water gates and others; 2.Replace the fuel operating water with new electric water pump where applicable; 3.Replace water pumps, pump houses (ferry) that were damaged; 4.Actively and successfully implementing the budgeted and planned projects; 5.Actively implementing planned projects with potential funds (Domestic and foreign investments) 6.Implementing agro-irrigation projects for larger production (rice, crops, aquaculture, applying techniques).

28 28 V. Challenges

29 Some areas designed for irrigated production are turned to other activities; Most of water user groups are not yet strong enough to manage and effectively use their irrigation system Water pumps are old and wearing out, requires a huge budget to repair and replace; Irrigation development without using pumps (natural flow) is easy to mange and use, but high capital cost to construct; Some areas designed for irrigated production are turned to other activities; Most of water user groups are not yet strong enough to manage and effectively use their irrigation system Water pumps are old and wearing out, requires a huge budget to repair and replace; Irrigation development without using pumps (natural flow) is easy to mange and use, but high capital cost to construct; Challges for future irrigation development Challenges (1) 29

30 Transform to modern irrigation by constructing irrigation channel with concrete, brick, and stone is the mean to reduce lose of water from the channel but related cost are high; Investment of private sector into irrigation development is still small Budget for repair damaged irrigation system due to natural disaster is limited and can not achieve expected goals.
