The Dhaulagiri Irrigation Development Project (DIDP) funded by Danish Development Cooperation (DANIDA) was a technical cooperation project of His Majesty's Government of Nepal (HM/N) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). The Project was implemented by HMG/N through the Department of Irrigation (DOl) from November 1989 to 1996 in all the four hill districts (Mustang, Myagdi, Baglung and Parbat) of Dhaulagiri zone. The project was a labor intensive demand-driven rural multi-sectoral infrastructure program. The long-term objectives of the project were to secure food production and improve the farmers' living conditions through the establishment of self-reliant farmer managed irrigation systems (FMIS) and the development of complementary social and economic activities. The final evaluation of the project was completed in April/May 1996 which expressed general satisfaction with regard to the people’s participation, physical outputs, farmers' institutional development, irrigation water delivery and associated increase in land productivities and cropping intensities, establishment of Women's Saving Groups (WSGs) with income generating activities and a fair trial of implementing piecework system and the involvement of local-based NGOs to provide farmers' training and to implement environmental protection measures.DIDP completed 67 small irrigation schemes with a total command area of about 2,600 ha. The Project carried out socio-economic surveys at 4 representative project sites with a view to measure at a later stage the impact of the project on food security, income arid employment and the standard of living of the farmer beneficiaries. The socio-economic baseline survey of those 4 sites was done in I 992 and the follow up impact survey in 1996. Key-effects monitoring (KEM) surveys on particularly agricultural production and socio-economic issues had been carried out over the past 6 years (1992 to 1997) in 15 sub-projects on an annual basis to monitor changes in sub-projects and facilitate documentation of longer term effects and impacts. It is expected that from KEM surveys it will be possible to verify agricultural indicators such as cultivation pattern, cropping intensity, yields of major and minor crops, agricultural practices and labour input. The objectives and methodology of KEM survey are highlighted in the following section.
