|Category of tools||MASSCOTE methodology|
|Field of application||
|Usability of practice for adaptation to climate change||Moderate|
|Implemented by||UN FAO in the Republic of Tajikistan
Province: Districts of Republican Subordination
Settlement: town of Vakhdat
|Practice also applied in the following localities||
Govkush Irrigation Canal
Located in the Kafirnigan River Basin (river catchment area)

|Problem solved through this practice||
Poor technical condition, operation and maintenance of the irrigation system
|Tools used in the practice||
|Description of the practice and its results||
Mapping of the system and services depending on canals’ purpose.
Financial and economic:
economically effective, fair and sustainable water resource management.
integrated protection of key environmental elements, including prevention of raising ground water level and secondary soil salination as well as irrigation-induced soil erosion, etc.
improved technical characteristics of municipal water supply to different stakeholders.
enhanced welfare of farm employees due to increased income.
|Lessons learnt and recommendations made||
Express assessment based on MASSCOTE methodology allows to improve the planning of upgrading efforts to ensure better servicing of diversified water uses requiring higher supply flexibility and cost reduction.
