Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM)


 Participatory irrigation management denotes a system of managing irrigation schemes which involves users in all aspects of their development and operation. The principle of participation in irrigation was introduced in the recognition that scheme design and management was not sufficiently responsive to local conditions and needs. Other more pragmatic incentives include the poor performance of many public sector agencies and the drive to reduce government expenditure on operation and maintenance. (See Chapter 13 for a fuller account of different approaches to PIM.)
