The main constraint on developing sustainable large scale agriculture in Afghanistan is inadequate water resource, although total water availability is substantial annually. Therefore, development and regulation of the rivers & streams are necessary in order to facilitate water supply throughout the year, mitigate flood damages, generate hydro-power, domestic supply, etc. Shah-Wa-Arus multipurpose Project is one of the suitable projects based on performed prefeasibility & feasibility studies.
