The essential steps before handing-over a borehole to the community
This concise and accessible GWI guide clearly outlines the steps required before, during and after the construction of water points, which must all be completed before the management of the water points is transferred to the community.
Agriculture in large-scale rice irrigation schemes needs to be made to work for both the state, in terms of economic returns and national food security, and for the smallholders whose livelihoods depend on it. When it comes to the development of new dams and large-scale irrigation, more information is needed about their economic viability and how the water, land, and economic benefits can be shared equitably to support local development.
