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 June 2018, a total of 1071 IAs were organized and 1040 IAs registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the region—171 in the NISs and 900 in the CISs. These IAs have total members of 100,547 farmers with total area coverage of 68,986 hectares. (See Table on Overall IDP and IMT Accomplishment for the breakdown of these figures.)
