Water Management of Minor Irrigation Schemes  



The need for adopting Participatory Approach for management of Irrigation projects is crucial for conserving and optimal utilization of resources, since Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) refers to involvement of Irrigation users in all aspects of Irrigation Management and at all levels. The aspects include the initial planning and design of new Minor Irrigation Projects (MIPís), their construction, supervision as well as improvement and also for decision making, operation and maintenance (O&M), monitoring and evaluation of the system. The Irrigation system in the country especially in the state of Meghalaya has so far been largely constructed and managed by the Government, so introducing PIM requires a new paradigm in Irrigation Management.
