INSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

To facilitate the implementation and management of irrigation programs and projects, the (re) organization, registration and development of farmer-beneficiaries (Irrigators’ Associations) were continually undertaken regionwide. Trainings, conferences and workshops were also executed for the IAs as well as the NIA Institutional Development staff.

As of December 2016, a total of 960 IAs were organized and 959 IAs registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the region—120 in the NISs and 840 in the CISs. These IAs have total members of 91,918 farmers with total area coverage of 66,039 hectares. (See Table on Overall IDP and IMT Accomplishment for the breakdown of these figures.)
