About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, Leslie Small and Ian Carruthers examine in detail the potentials and limitations of user fees for financing irrigation operation and maintenance. Both authors have extensive field experience in irrigation in developing countries and have combined this experience with simple concepts of ecomics to examine possible institutional and financial reforms which would t simply ask farmers to pay for an inadequate irrigation service, but would create the potential for significant improvements in the quality of the service provided. The proposed elements of any such reform are discussed in depth - a system of user fees covering the recurrent costs of irrigation; a financially automous irrigation agency that can retain and use the fees to operate and maintain the irrigation facilities; and a macro policy environment that is t unduly skewed against the agricultural sector. Written in a style intended to convey ecomic perspectives and insights to n-ecomists, this book will be essential reading for all those concerned with the financing and performance of irrigation in developing countries.
