Contracting for water point construction: Provisional and final acceptance forms
Water users require a mechanism for holding contractors to account in the construction of water points. Using these GWI forms gives the water user committee the opportunity to make a detailed inventory and quality assessment of the work completed by the contractor, to help ensure that the eventual construction adheres to the original design. We provide these clear and accessible forms for each of the four water point options (2 x boreholes, 2 x hand-dug wells), and signpost records of other important water point acceptance documents which should be made available to the user by the contractor.
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.
