Abstract:This book contains the papers which were presented at a series of workshops on irrigation farming in Kenya and Zimbabwe organized in 1987. Substantial financial investment has gone into large-scale irrigation projects in Africa. However, their performance has been below expectation. The papers emphasize the role of smallholder irrigation projects and discuss ways of increasing farmer management and the financial viability of projects. Other major policy areas discussed include water use efficiency, institutional capacity, microscale irrigation, research, health and environmental questions.
