Revitalizing Irrigation and Agriculture Water Governance in the Asia Pacific to meet the Millennium Development Goals

Docs (15) - Main outputs of the project are a regional setup for the overall governance, steering, management, coordination and implementation of key components launched at regional and river basin levels to meet MDGs


1.Modernize yerteryear’s schemes for tomorrow’s needs – Modernize  irrigation system would benefit various aging irrigation systems across Asia  

2.Go with the flow by supporting farmer initiatives – Promote opportunities for investors to direct fund toward successful initiatives. Farmers are raising yields using logically adapted irrigation technologies. 

3.Look beyond conventional Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) and Management Transfer (IMT) recipes – Transform large scale irrigation schemes by transferring management to farms that have less expected result throughout Asia

4.     Expand capacity and knowledge –  Direct fund toward training existing staffs and building the capacity of all stakeholders

5.Invest outside the irrigation sector –  Frame policies to ensure external influence on the water sector are properly understood as irrigation is embedded in the wider economy and therefore affected by external forces
