The additional financing will support the governmentâs efforts in scaling up activities implemented under the on-going IDP through rehabilitation of tertiary irrigation systems, and through providing training and technical assistance to Water Usersâ Associations (WUAs). Implementation of this phase was initiated under the Bank-funded Irrigation Rehabilitation Project, followed by the Dam Safety Project, and subsequently by the Irrigation Dam Safety Project II, which is expected to conclude the emergency intervention phase. Continued support to Water Users Associations is crucial, since they represent the core of a more effective institutional set-up that has notably improved, in recent years, the sectorâs financial sustainability and efficiency. By the time the project is completed, 37 proposals for the rehabilitation of some 110 km of tertiary level canals for Water Users Associations in 37 communities in Ararat, Yerevan, Armavir, Gegharkounik, Aragatsotn and Kotaik marzes will be implemented. read me
