In order to face the challenge of disappointing returns on public
investment in irrigation and drainage new solutions have emerged. These
solutions are based on widely available technology and new management
and governance options.
The main message of Re-engaging in Agricultural Water
Management is that the irrigation and drainage sector should not
continue to be dealt with as a standalone sector, but should be
integrated into a broader perspective, one that embraces the objectives
of productivity growth, poverty reduction, natural resources management
and environmental protection.
