The South Karakalpakstan Water Resources Management Improvement Project (SKWRMIP) has been devised to address constraints on agricultural productivity in parts of the Uzbekistan territory lying within the South Karakalpakstan (SK). In addition, to complement the success of the DIWIP (Drainage Irrigation and Wetlands Improvement Project), the SKWRMIP emphasizes the improved water management of combined irrigation systems in general and on the irrigation system in particular. The SK irrigation system lies within three southern districts (raions) of the Autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan, namely Beruni, Ellikkala, and Turtkul at the tail end and on the right bank of Amu Darya. The Project Area covers an area of about 100,000 ha.
