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 2019, a total of 1,152 IAs were organized and 1,124 IAs registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the region—57 in the NISs and 1,067 in the CISs. These IAs have total members of 102,379 farmers with total area coverage of 70,067 hectares. (See Table on Overall IDP and IMT Accomplishment for the breakdown of these figures.)
