LUSIP II Extension Programme (PDA).

Scope of work:

The LUSIP II Extension Project is a continuation of the Lower Usuthu Small Holder Irrigation. Project (LUSIP) goal is to improve the standard of living of the population in the Project Area through an environmentally and culturally sustainable process.

The LUSIP II Extension will command an irrigable area of 11, 500 hectares (ha). Of this area 9, 300 ha is new development. The balance of the area has already been developed but will in the future receive water via the canal system to enable them to cut down on pumping costs as the area is currently being irrigated from the Usuthu River. Once completed, the total area to be irrigated under the whole LUSIP is 17,500.

The LUSIP II Extension Project is composed of the following Project components-

Component 1: is for the development of the main canal conveyance system to deliver the water to the Matata Area. Estimated at E623 Million.

Component 2: is for the construction of the tertiary distribution system which will cost approximately E386 Million.

Component 3: is for the construction of the Nsoko conveyance system and associated irrigation development.

Component 4: is the one all the farmers are looking forward to as it directly impacts on the irrigation.

Component 5, 6 & 7: respectively is for the farmer training, environmental mitigation and project management aspects. This is budgeted at E214 Million.

Baseline Survey Purpose:

The survey is designed to establish initial conditions against which the effects of the LUSIP II Extension Project can be compared.
