About CPMO-NWARA:The Panj-Amu River basin Project (P-ARBP) is a component of the EU Agriculture Support Programme, 2004-2018.The EU-funded Panj-Amu River Basin Programme (P-ARBP) has generally proved to produce positive results: water and land resources are better managed, sustainably protected and precipitation run-off reduced. As the P-ARBP represents the first successful attempt of a participatory river basin management approach in Afghanistan; it is expected that the Government of Afghanistan will strengthen and expand it nation-wide with the support of the Asian Development Bank. Built on the achievements and lessons learned of three previous projects: Kunduz River Basin Programme (KRBP), Amu River Basin Programme (ARBP) and P-ARBP, it covers – since 2004 all six sub-basins: Upper Kunduz, Lower Kunduz, Upper Panj, Lower Panj, Taloqan and Kokcha situated in the provinces of Bamyan, Badakhshan, Baghlan, Kunduz and Takhar. The program is articulated around four main components: Supporting the enhancement of the integrated River Basin management and human resources capacities at central government, Panj-Amu River Basin and 6 Sub-basin levels; 2) Supporting NWARA and local communities in the rehabilitation, construction and sustainable improvement of irrigation, drainage and water flow control assets and structures in selected hydraulic systems throughout the Panj-Amu River basin; 3) Supporting the setting-up and functioning of Water User Associations (WUA’s) and their participation in decision making. Enhance the technical, management skills of targeted WUAs communities represented by their WUA’s required to improve the management of irrigation water, and thereby enhance its equitable distribution; 4) Protecting the natural resource basis in the source areas through protection and management of natural resources such as increase of biomass and the adoption and replication of physical and biological erosion control measures in selected sub-catchments of the basin. After a near-decade of reconstruction, in the context of the ongoing “transition” towards the “Transformation Decade” for Afghanistan (2015-2024), a shift in method, without a change in objectives, is now needed, desirable, and feasible.
