PROJECT SUMMARY
Project start: Jul 2012
Project completion: Aug 2019
Sectors: Water Resources
Project location: Accra Plains, Ghana

The Accra Plain is located on the lower Right Bank of the Volta River in Ghana’s Volta Region and consists of about 200,000 hectares, much of which remains under-cultivated due to lack of irrigation infrastructure and services. Following the completion of the Kpong dam, a more controlled approach enabled gravitational irrigation to an area of 3,000 hectares of the Kpong Right Bank Irrigation Project (KIS), currently under rehabilitation, and more recently 1,000 ha of the Kpong Left Bank Irrigation Project (KLBIP), currently under extension.

A new initiative led by the Government of Ghana (GoG), Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and the Ghana Irrigation Development Authority (GIDA) established a plan for design and build development of select areas of the Accra Plain, extending irrigation infrastructure and services to a New Development Irrigation Scheme (NDIS) covering a gross area of 11,000 ha. The project involves three components:

  • An intake in the Kpong Reservoir (head pond)
  • A main canal from the intake with associated structures
  • Development of a new irrigation scheme (NDIS)
SERVICES PROVIDED:
  • Review of draft contracts and specifications for design and build contractor
  • Reviews of contractors technical submissions and presentations for design concepts for the project
  • Technical and contractual advice to GIDA
  • Awaiting full implementation and Front End Engineering Design and Project Management.
