Notice Abstract

Project Description: Agriculture is one of the leading sectors of economy of Kazakhstan and plays the main role in provision of food products to the people of this country. Kazakhstan possesses considerable potential capacities for agriculture. Its development will help to increase employment and accelerate economic growth of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It will also help to increase export of agricultural products and reduce their import. To increase the production of agricultural products, it will be necessary to expand the irrigated land, which, in turn, can be achieved by increasing the water supply for irrigation up to 15.34 billion m3 by restoring and modernising the water management, irrigation and drainage infrastructure. In this regard, the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) signed a senior loan in May 2017 equivalent to 174 million US dollars to finance a project aimed at the rehabilitation of irrigation infrastructure (mainly irrigation canals) in Aktobe, Zhambyl and South Kazakhstan regions of Kazakhstan (the “Project”).

This will be achieved via the following major institutional development actions: •Development and implementation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme. •Development and adoption of a Corporate Business Plan. •Development and introduction of a Management Information System. •Development or adoption of a new tariff calculation methodology (if it is available by that time and approved by the GoK). •Development and adoption of a Compliance Action Plan.
