Managing large irrigation schemes: a problem of political economy

Book/book chapter

This book is intended to be of general relevance to Third
World conditions, though it contains somewhat of an Asian bias as papers 2 and 3 were written for a meeting in Pakistan, paper 4 for a meeting in India.

These are unique experiments. They suggest that, especially in countries where population pressures on land are very acute and significant land reform measures are unlikely to occur for various reasons, increasing thought should be given to ways of giving a third party, the landless, an important stake in the ownership and/or management of water.
