Abstract: "This report is prepared based on a collaborative research project titled 'Impact of Irrigation on Poverty and Environment'. The overall project focuses on understanding the crucial role that water, in conjunction with other factors, needs to play to reduce poverty and food insecurity, while maintaining an environmental balance. The research promotes irrigation development that will enhance positive impacts such as poverty alleviation and minimize negative impacts such as environmental degradation. In this report, documentation and information for 12 irrigation systems totaling about 22 sites/schemes have been identified. The common characteristics of these schemes have been provided in this report, with a view of having comprehensive information on the selected case study sites based on rapid appraisal, secondary data and site visits."
