French Development Agency to provide a grant of 10 million euros for  the implementation of the Irrigated Agriculture program in Armavir  and Ararat regions

ArmInfo.Within the framework of the Irrigated Agriculture program, the French Development Agency (FAR) will provide a grant of 10 million euros to Armenia. The  proposal to conclude an agreement was approved at a cabinet meeting on October 17.

According to the Minister of Economy of Armenia Tigran Khachatryan,  the program consists of two parts:  8.5 million will be allocated to  the Ministry of Economy, and 1.5 microns of euro to the Ministry of  Territorial Development and Infrastructures. The funds will be used  to implement the Irrigated Agriculture program in the Armavir and  Ararat regions. The goal is to ensure more sustainable and effective  development of the agricultural sector, the development of skills and  assistance in the creation and development of cooperatives, as well  as to increase the availability of consulting and financial services  for farms.

According to the results of the program, the minister said that it is  expected to modernize irrigation infrastructures on an area of 2  thousand ha, create at least 20 production cooperatives and farming  groups.  10 land consolidation activities will also be implemented.

Earlier, ArmInfo already reported that the French Development Agency  (FAR), together with the EU, will provide a grant of 10 million euros  to Armenia under the Irrigated Agriculture program. The program is  designed for three years (2018-2020), its goal is to improve the  irrigation system in the Armavir and Ararat regions. Financing will  be aimed at introducing a drip irrigation system, breaking down  intensive orchards, processing fruit crops, laying secondary  irrigation canals and land consolidation.

The funds will be allocated to the Agricultural Development Fund,  which, in turn, will be responsible for the implementation of the  program.

This program is interlinked with another project also funded by the  FAR - the Vedi Reservoir Construction Program. The program provides  for the enlargement of a number of communities in the Ararat region  located next to the Vedinsky reservoir under construction, where it  is planned to introduce a drip irrigation system. The construction of  the reservoir should provide reliable irrigation of 7500 hectares of  land in the Ararat plain. It is expected that following the results  of the implementation of two programs, it will be possible to resolve  the issue of irrigation of agricultural land in the region.
