EBRD and FAO support Serbia’s efforts to increase irrigation

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) are supporting Serbia to boost its agricultural production by increasing its irrigation capacity.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of Serbia launched a project with the two organisations to prepare a national irrigation strategy and a related five-year action plan. The project will also help the country identifying and mapping priority investments for the next ten years.

A working group comprising all relevant stakeholders met today for the first time to launch activities, and will oversee the preparation of the irrigation strategy.  A leading agricultural producer and grain exporter, Serbia nevertheless is highly vulnerable to climate change and drought with less than 2 percent of Serbia’s arable land being irrigated.
