The goal of the project is the construction of three new small-scale irrigation systems in Konopnica (nearby Kriva Palanka), Pishica (nearby Shtip) and Tearce (nearby Tetovo).

On 8 April 2022 the Deputy Head of the Delegation of the European Union and Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy jointly launched the construction works over the small-scale irrigation system in village of Konopnica. The team leader of the IRD Supervision team Mr. Vlatko Damchevski explained the project details to the representatives of the Government, the representative of the EU and local population.

Konopnica system alone includes 4.4 km gravity pipeline network with a total surface of 42 hectares of arable agricultural land stretched along the Krivo Moste river. Over 100 farmers will benefit from this environmentally friendly irrigation system. Such irrigation systems contribute to healthy soil, which further allows for healthy and affordable food. This ‘Farm to Fork’ approach is at the heart of the European Green Deal, aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally friendly.
