How we did it: Field visits, questionnaires, interviews, hydro-meteorological analysis, topographic survey, geospatial mapping and hydrological modelling, natural resources baseline and Environmental Impact Assessment, socio-economic analysis. Water balance and availability at different river junctions. Based on this information, three options for irrigation development were presented to the National Irrigation Board and local stakeholders.
