Irrigation management transfer: strategies and best practices

This book is a synthesis of strategies and best practices adopted by various countries in irrigation management transfer. It identifies key concerns such as water user associations' structure and functions, financial mobilization and constraints, repair and maintenance of physical structures, operation of canal systems, capacity building and monitoring mechanisms. It also identifies enabling environments, including regulatory mechanisms, and the role of non-governmental organizations. It is largely based on secondary sources, with references to experiences across the world.
