Improving canal irrigation management: no need to wait
MetadataShow full item record
This paper suggests actions which irrigation system managers can take to improve performance without additional resources. Managers can use methods of rapid appraisal and a straightforward set of questions to identify feasible improvements. These can be found in three spheres of activity: scheduling water distribution, especially to save or better use water at night; communications; and farmer participation. Improvements can be identified and introduced at once. There is no need for managers to wait.
