Buy Article:


Although there is greater acceptance that farmers can manage their irrigation systems efficiently, many irrigation experts believe that a shift from informal to more formal management strategies will lead to even better water-flow management.

They argue that irrigation improvement projects need to engage with the local context and encourage a minimum of formal organization.Development (2008) 51, 77–82. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100441
