The Government of Georgia obtained financing from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) towards financing the cost of the Agriculture Support Project in the country. As a result, the reliable supply of irrigation water through the rehabilitation of the most deteriorated irrigation schemes has been considered as top priority by the Government.

Within this project, the Government of Georgia awarded to Eptisa a new contract to develop consultancy services for the preparation of feasibility studies for the selection of viable irrigation schemes for rehabilitation. The assignment has been developed during three months in the regions of Kvemo Kartli (Marneuli District) and Shida Kartli (Kaspi District).

As part of a project, the Small-scale Rural Infrastructure (SSRI) component consists of two sub-components. The first one consists of feasibility studies, detail design studies, and supervision, and the second one is the construction of Civil Works. It aims at addressing in targeted areas some of the constraints posed by the conditions of Georgia’s rural infrastructure to the development of economic.

Eptisa is responsible for undertaking feasibility studies of 9 irrigation schemes for infrastructure support under SSRI. This feasibility study incorporates standardized tasks of feasibility assignment, excluding preparation of preliminary design and cost estimates of schemes, which already was prepared by United Amelioration Systems Company of Georgia.
