The Project for Irrigation Development for Nyakomba Irrigation Scheme (completed)

The project will improve and construct irrigation facilities in the Nyanga District in Manicaland Province, where small-scale farmers rely on less than 600 millimeter of natural rainfall per year, so as to provide a stable supply of irrigation water to the target area, thereby improving the agricultural production of small-scale farmers in the area.
