The objective of GCAP is to improve agricultural productivity and production of both smallholder and nucleus farms in selected project intervention areas with increased access to reliable water, land, finance, agricultural inputs and output markets. In line with this objective, GCAP is embarking on the rehabilitation and modernization of existing public irrigation infrastructure, notably the Kpong Irrigation Scheme (KIS), the Kpong Left Bank Irrigation Project (KLBIP), all in the Eastern Region, and the Tono and Vea irrigation dams in the Upper East Region.Private sector players will be introduced to the management of the irrigation schemes and support given to the participation of farmers in the management of irrigation and drainage assets.
