Under the WSIP Project and as per WSIP ISEA recommendations, the Environmental Management and Social Development Cell (SDC) of SIDA would be strengthened in order to support implementation of Social and EMF/EMPs under the project and also to improve SIDA's capacity in planning, development and operation of water resources management systems with proper consideration to environmental and social issues and participation of stakeholders in order to make water systems sustainable in the long run and generate higher benefits.

In addition to above a Training Centre has also been established by SIDA in the Transition Department. The training centre will undertake training activities for which enough funding is already provided in WSIP project PC-1 in the component E of the project i.e. Project Management, Coordination and Technical Assistance. The center's establishment/operational cost would be identified later-on from the block allocation. A note on SIDA Training Centre. Moreover, a Farmer organization complaint centre (FOCC) has also been established in the department to address the issues and concerns of stakeholders, especially of farmers and FOs.
