This guideline is practical in its intent, aiming to support water managers in making choices that will lead to more secure water use rights for agricultural livelihoods for small-scale farmers, as well as the development of economically vibrant and empowered rural communities. In doing so, it challenges the idea that water permit systems are the only tool for the regulation and control of water use and poses an alternative, hybrid approach that can be adopted and adapted to achieve improved pro-poor and developmental outcomes.
