In an attempt to provide a non-subjective parametric framework for the selection and priority treatment of irrigation schemes in the resettlement areas of Zimbabwe, a ranking system was designed and applied in the evaluation of 107 schemes in various parts of the country. The ranking scheme takes into consideration the relationships between various physical and socio-economic factors. The factors selected are then weighted and the rationale behind the weighting is discussed.
