Exercise: irrigation management in Pakistan
So now, having an idea of the challenges that exist in irrigation systems, what could be objectives for managers? Can you mention some? Can they differ from the objectives of individual farmers?
Now, have a look at this interview with Dr. Anwar from IMWI Pakistan and try to answer the following questions:
1. What are the main challenges he mentions regarding irrigation in Pakistan? For whom?
2. What could be irrigation management objectives?
3. He mentions a reform program; what is the objective and for whom, and why do you think it is important?
Feel free to have another look at the interview once you have answered the questions to evaluate your answers.
Finally, can you think of other objectives in irrigation management?
