Recent investigations into the scenarios for development of water management and irrigation and drainage practices have demonstrated that there is a great potential for large scale irrigation in the North. In 2012, Wienco Ghana Limited (Wienco) and The Government of Ghana through the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development of the Sisili-Kulpawn irrigation Project (the Project). Despite the limitations of the SAEZ the availability of land and extensive water resources do offer promising business expansion opportunities for the private sector. For the expansion of modernized agricultural practices Wienco Ghana Ltd is proposing to co – invest in key bulk water infrastructure in the Sisili–Kulpawn Basin to control the excessive flooding and unleash irrigated agriculture as the core driver to enhance rural income and alleviate poverty.

Irrigation investments that help to direct water to dry areas and reduce flooding will bring relief to the farmers in the Sisili-Kulpawn Basin. To apprehend this transition Wienco Ghana Ltd. established the IIntegrated Water & Agricultural Management Department (IWAD) in 2012.
