ASSESSING WATER MANAGEMENT OPTIONS FOR TWO FEEDER ROADS UNDER REHABILITATION BY REACH PROJECT IN KWEEN AND KANUNGU DISTRICT

International Fertilizer Development Centre (IFDC) is implementing the “Resilient Efficient Agribusiness Chains” (REACH – UGANDA) project, an innovative four – year agribusiness initiative. One of the objectives of the REACH – Uganda project is to improve availability and uptake of public and private support services related to core commodity value chains, infrastructure being one of the services. As part of the program, IFDC realized that two of the access roads under rehabilitation located in Kween and Kanungu needed road water management and best practices applied to avoid damage to the roads by run off and protecting crops in farms/gardens adjacent to the roads. The roads link the established farmer to markets thereby contributing towards the objectives of the REACH – Uganda project.The overall objective of this report is to outline the weak spots and issues of these roads related to water management. And based on this information propose solutions which cater for beneficial water management for landscapes and farms, and increase road durability and longevity at reduced maintenance costs. The roads under construction aim to be exemplary roads of how low-cost innovative road water management solutions, can make roads multi-functional, serving more than its transport functions solely.
