The construction of small dams and dugouts across communities of the three Northern Regions is the main project under the One Village, One Dam initiative. This IPEP initiative seeks to provide all-year availability of water for small holder farmers in communities, particularly in the three northern regions.
This initiative is expected to improve productivity and incomes of small holder farmers significantly and, bring about improvements in rural livelihoods. Ultimately, it is also expected to improve food security, and curtail migration from the north to the south in search for jobs during the off-farm season.
To this end, the Ministry in collaboration with Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) specifically the Ghana Irrigation Development Authority (GIDA) have commenced the implementation of the One Village, One Dam initiative. A total of 570 sites have been identified for the construction and rehabilitation of small dams and dugouts by the end of 2018.
