GAFSP financing will create surface water harnessing facilities, structures, and irrigation works as well as implementing counter erosion measures in watersheds upstream of the structures. GAFSP activities support construction and rehabilitation of water-spreading bunds, mini dams, and irrigation areas which will help to increase the arable land area by more than 17,000 hectares. This is being complemented by the construction of community wells, rural roads, storage infrastructure and measures for improving land-tenure security on the project sites, and thereby is expected to improve the living standards of more than 200,000 people.

The map overlays sub-national poverty data, rural development data, demographic indicators and project infomration.
