LUSIP II Extension

The LUSIP II Extension Project is a continuation of the Lower Usuthu Small Holder Irrigation Project (LUSIP) whose goal is to improve the standard of living of the population in the Project Area through an environmentally and culturally sustainable process.

Objectives

The objectives of LUSIP II Extension are:
  1. To integrate smallholder farmers into the commercial economy through the establishment of farmer-managed irrigation companies.
  2. To increase efficiencies in the sugar cane value chains
  3. To strengthen bulk water administration and infrastructure maintenance
  4. To improve the quality of life for people living within the PDA
  5. To attain efficient project coordination and management

LUSIP II Extension Project is being implemented in two stages.  Stage 1 of the development will command an irrigable area of 5,750 hectares (ha). Of this area 5,217 ha is new development.  The balance of the area has already been developed but will in the future receive water via the canal system to enable the users to cut down on pumping costs as the area is currently being irrigated from the Usuthu River.

Components

The LUSIP II extension project will comprise of six components:

The whole project will cost an estimated SZL 2, 099 billion.
