About this book

The author identifies the pre-conditions relating to water availability, institutional support and economic opportunity that must be satisfied before smallholders in developing countries can adopt irrigation methods and benefit from them. In addition, the circumstances in which modern technologies were introduced are identified, and the relative success or otherwise of the initiatives are summarized.
