International Capacity Builidng Program on Participatory Irrigation Management

INPIM and DSI Turkey are pleased to announce the International Capacity Building Program on Prospective Irrigation Management to be held at the International Agro Hydrology Research and Traning Centre Menemen, near Izmir, Turkey. The Training program is aimed at Trainers of Training Institutes, Policy Makers, WUA and Irrigation District Managers. The training program builds further on National Initiatives and gives an overview of international experience in irrigation reforms and PIM. In the past INPIM and the World Bank Institute conducted the first set of International Capacity Building program on PIM at the Mediterranean Agronomic institute in Bari, Italy. The program was conducted over a period of five years and focused on creating awareness on PIM. The present initiative will feature on more practical aspects of WUA management, organisations, financial and legal framework. The training program will form an excellent complement to the National Training Programs of countries where it exists. The first program under this series conducted in December 2004 ( view details of the program) drew an unprecedented response. The next program is slated for September / October 2005.
