Improving the water quality will increase more advantages for the people who live in rural area, especially for the farmers and the improvement in agriculture. Thus, the government must develop a new irrigation scheme to fit the demand in the community. Most water users fail to keep the water quality, adequately in the maintenance of irrigation and drainage (I&D) systems.
This land that used to be dry and full of small plants, is currently the source of water in Satbaria-Dharompur, Bharamara, Kustia Bangladesh. It was developed under the Haor Infrastructure and Livelihood Improvement Project (HILIP) and also getting the fund from ADB, IFAD and by the government of Netherland since 16 years ago. Regarding the Haor Infrastructure and Livelihood Improvement Project (HILIP), it is situated in northeastern Bangladesh and is subject to very peculiar conditions and suffers from extensive annual flooding. The project has been put into action in 28 Upazilas in Bangladesh, in the area suffered from flood, thus, this project is currently working with the people and those areas, which are lack of access to natural resources; lack of access to services; seasonal isolation; and extreme biophysical constraints to production of crop etc.
The process of water management keeps going on, which cooperated and supported by Local Government Engineer Department (LGED) under the Ministry Local Government and Rural Development & Cooperatives (MoLGRD&C). This year LGED, Government of Bangladesh allowed them Required more Taka for Periodic Maintenance.
In the picture, we can see one side of 2.44-meter water in canal & another side almost dry. As mentioned earlier, it now has become the useful water resource in the community, as is used to grow crops, fruits, vegetables, sustain livestock and many various types. With the project, it was developed under the water conservation by WMCA through the regulator, thus, people also have no worry about the water quality. According to the Local Government Engineer Department (LGED), there are still many water resources sector projects, which the farmers are still seeking for more development partners and sponsors.
