Final Report: On-Farm Irrigation Development Assistance
In March of 1990, a contract was entered into between the contractor and USAID/Honduras for services to the Government of Honduras in the development of on-farm irrigation systems. The work was to be done through the PRORIEGO program, sponsored by USAID and the Government of Honduras and under the direction of the Direccion General de Recursos Hidricos in the Secretaria de Recursos Naturales. Prior to the initiation of the contract, the consultant had made three previous trips to Honduras to work with PRORIEGO under a contract with USAID through Colorado State University and WINROCK International. Under those contracts a series of norms and standards for the design and construction of small irrigation systems was written. The current contract was for a period of two years to assist in the incorporation of those standards in the design and construction of on-farm irrigation systems through PRORIEGO. Later, the contract was extended to the end of September 1993, making a total length for the contract of three and one-half years.
