This workshop is an output of Projects R7839 and R7830. It sought to address the following key questions:
How can government agencies, international donors, markets, banks, the scientific establishments, and NGOs redefine their roles and relationships with poor people in order to bring about institutional changes that will deliver pro-poor, livelihood-focused research and subsequent development impact?
Given the dependence of the national economy and the agricultural sector on water availability, how can we achieve effective implementation of participatory irrigation management (PIM) through the linkage between on-farm and main canal water management?
How can rural service delivery be made most relevant to the needs of the poor and socially disadvantaged?
