Small Irrigation Development Project – Phase II

Overview

The Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE) has prepared a performance evaluation report on the Small Irrigation Development Project - phase II in the Republic of Haiti, implemented from 2008 to 2016. The aim of the project was to increase the incomes and improve the living conditions of poor and vulnerable rural households by targeting landless smallholders and farmers (especially women and young people) working on small plots of irrigable land. The evaluation found that the project contributed to better organization and empowerment of the target groups, and to building their capacity to maintain the irrigation infrastructure. The project also helped build the capacities of decentralized bodies providing technical support to producers, and introduced drip irrigation technology in the country. However, the project’s achievements in terms of income generation and watershed management were limited. Due to Haiti’s exposure to natural disasters, key recommendations are related to implementation of an integrated watershed management approach, coupled with the protection of natural resources, as well to promotion of a value chain approach in interventions.
