The project developed three sites at feasibility and detail design level (Group 1 sites - 6400ha) and evaluated the potential to develop another four sites at a later stage, at prefeasibility level (Group 2 sites). Public and private partnerships (PPP) were created for the irrigation development and management in al Irrigation Development Support Projectl IDSP sites. Project interventions consisted of a three-tier system at each of the irrigation sites to be developed. Water supply is ensured via the construction of Mwomboshi dam, which will be 23m high and have a total storage volume of around 62MCM. The dam catchment is 954km². All four Group 2 sites - 10000ha - require the construction of a dam to ensure the necessary water volumes. The overall objective of the study was to undertake a prefeasibility study covering the entire study area and to continue with feasibility studies and detailed designs of multiple land husbandry, dam and hillside irrigation schemes at selected sites with a total irrigation net area of 3,500 ha (total gross area of 4,200 ha). All required surveys topographical, geotechnical, soil and socio were part of the services.Finally a feasibility study of an HPP of 0.2 MWwas prepared. The project was tendered.

Evros River flows at the eastern Balkan peninsula and its basin covers a total area of 53,000km2, spread between Bulgaria (35,085km² - 66.2% of the total area), Turkey (14,575km² - 27.5%) and Greece (3,340 km2 - 6.3%). The total river flow length is 528km, of which 310km are within Bulgarian territories while the remaining 218km define the borderline of the three countries. It is the second largest river of the Balkans, after Danube, and transports a significant sediment yield, creating an estuary of high environmental value at the Aegean Sea. The Greek part of the basin has around 1.5% of the country's population and is characterized by mostly agricultural and livestock activities.The study aims at identifying future flood risks, based on historic information and detailed hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, in order to propose administrative measures and civil protection actions that will allow for reducing the impact of flooding events in the future.

The scope of this project was the development of a coherent framework of principles and practices, established in international practice, for reducing AAWSA overall Non Revenue Water (NRW) from a current level of about 36% to 40% to a level of 20% by the year 2020. Addis Ababa and its surrounding areas had population estimated to about 3.5 million inhabitants. A significant aspect of this project within the overall scope was also the Capacity Building of AAWSA personnel. In this sense, the project also aimed to provide to all AAWSA organizational levels (NRW Task Force, Development, GIS, Operation and Maintenance and Accounting Departments) the means and the ability to continuously evaluate and implement future schemes of cost effective NRW management.Ten pilot District Metered Areas each including approximately 800-1200 customers were proposed. Zero pressure tests were performed to test DMA watertightness and the Active Leakage Control was carried out using listening sticks, leak noise correlators and ground microphones. DMA Minimum Night Flow analysis was carried out using available field data. A program of individual consumer demand monitoring of sampled customers was implemented for use in the Minimum Night Flow Analysis.
