Improving Livelihoods through Water for Production

The Ministry of Water and Environment is undertaking several programmes in the development and utilization of water resources for productive use in crop irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, rural industries and other commercial uses to improve people’s livelihoods in rural areas through increasing the storage volumes for water for production. This is being done through construction of medium irrigation schemes, small scale irrigation schemes, earth dams, valley tanks, deep boreholes and bulk water schemes.
