    Titre: Negotin lowland irrigation system upgrading
    Auteur: Popović Vesna; Kljajić Nataša; Subić Jonel
    Sujet: Irrigation System Modernization ; Irrigated Agriculture Profitability ; Water Users' Associations ; Economics
    Description: According to FAO concept of irrigation modernisation, to be effective, an irrigation system must be based on improved irrigation efficiency, reduced operation and maintenance costs and improved cost recovery based on raised agricultural productivity, with due consideration to the institutional and legal-related issues and environment protection. To make the irrigation system successfully upgraded, the project needs to undergo a comprehensive analysis of the factors that lead to the modernization. Using the IPTRID/FAO-AGLW methodological approach of addressing causes for irrigation modernization, the authors in the paper review technical, socio-institutional, economic-financial and environmental causes for upgrading of the irrigation system in the Negotin lowland and give some recommendations for successful realization of this project, based on international and regional experiences and adjusted to specificities of local agriculture and rural communities.

    Titre: Efficiency of common-pool resource institutions: focusing on water users associations in South Africa
    Auteur: Madigele, Patricia
    Sujet: Water users associations ; Common-pool resources ; Water resources management ; Path dependency
    Description: Despite of the promulgation of new water laws post-apartheid by the South African government, some parts of the country are still faced with inequitable, inefficient and inadequate water supply. Water institutions in South Africa and other developing countries are faced with various and multi-faceted challenges that consequently lead to their failure to provide water resources effectively. The evident responsibility of governing water resources in developing countries is commonly played by local and national institutions, using the water sector’s fundamental regulations, policies as well as statutory enactments. This paper draws lessons from the international examples to analyse the motivation for WUAs and the challenges they are faced with. The method for data generation used in this article is document analysis. A narrative approach using the literature and document analysis provided an insight into the economic and institutional history of WUAs. The analytical framework to study path dependency and power relations in connection with WUAs in South Africa was drawn from a literature review of transition studies and NIE. This study established that the current and future decisions made by the WUAs in South Africa are not entirely independent of those made in the past under irrigation boards. The study argues that establishing WUAs cannot automatically substitute for the domains of relations which existed within irrigation boards.

    Titre: Facilitating bricolage through more organic institutional designs? The case of water users’ associations in rural Nepal
    Auteur: Juho Haapala; Sanna-Leena Rautanen; Pamela White; Marko Keskinen; Olli Varis
    Sujet: Development Project Implementation ; Institutional Bricolage ; Institutional Design Principles ; Nepal ; Organic Design ; Water Users Associations ; Economics
    Description: This study scrutinizes the institutional realities of water project implementation in remote, rural Nepal. It demonstrates that both sound institutional design and local bricolage capabilities are required for sustainable operation and maintenance of local institutions in the challenging operational environment. Institutional bricolage processes are best facilitated through providing locally legitimate, inspiring spaces to local agencies for continued learning, adaptation, and innovation. However, the apparent institutional designs do not explicitly facilitate such bricolage processes. We therefore outline more organic institutional design that accounts for and addresses the interlaced institutional design and bricolage processes in development intervention contexts for advancing more sustainable natural resources management.

    Titre: Gender and property rights in the commons: Examples of water rights in South Asia
    Auteur: Zwarteveen, Margreet; Meinzen-Dick, Ruth
    Sujet: Common property ; Devolution ; Gender ; Irrigation ; Property rights ; Water users' associations
    Description: In many countries and resource sectors, the state is devolving responsibility for natural resource management responsibility to ``communities'' or local user groups. However, both policymakers and researchers in this area have tended to ignore the implications of gender and other forms of intra-community power differences for the effectiveness and equity of natural resource management. In the irrigation sector, despite the rhetoric on women's participation, a review of evidence from South Asia shows that organizations often exclude women through formal or informal membership rules and practices. Women may have other ways to obtain irrigation services, but even if they are effective, these other informal ways of obtaining irrigation services are typically less secure. As resource management – and rights to resources – are transferred from the state to local organizations, ensuring women's participation is essential for gender equity in control over resources. Greater involvement of women can also strengthen the effectiveness of local organizations by improving women's compliance with rules and maintenance contributions. Further detailed and comparative research is required to identify the major factors that affect women's participation and control over resources, if devolution policies are to be both equitable and sustainable.

    Auteur: Obando Camino, Iván Mauricio
    Sujet: LAW ; Organización de Usuarios de Aguas ; Jurisdicción ; Derecho de Aguas ; Water Users Associations ; Jurisdiction ; Water Law ; Law
    Description: Este artículo analiza las organizaciones de usuarios de aguas en Chile antes de la emisión de la Ley N° 2.139, de 1908, para determinar cuáles fueron las formas asociativas empleadas por los regantes para organizarse hasta aquel entonces y si estos últimos confirieron atribuciones jurisdiccionales a dichas organizaciones para resolver los conflictos derivados del ejercicio de los derechos de sus asociados. Esta investigación verifica el empleo de instituciones jurídicas novedosas, originadas en figuras contractuales y cuasicontractuales, que dieron lugar a un modelo organizativo basado en ciertas notas comunes. Asimismo, la investigación establece la existencia de cinco opciones de diseño institucional, a lo menos, entre 1831 y 1908, respecto del otorgamiento de atribuciones jurisdiccionales a organizaciones de usuarios de aguas.

    Titre: Water user associations in northern Ghana: from institutional panacea to reality check
    Auteur: Acheampong, Ernest Nti; Venot, Jean-Philippe

    Description: Small reservoirs development in Ghana dates back to the post-independence era. Small reservoirs were meant at providing water for livestock, mitigating the impacts of recurrent drought, increasing food security, and reducing poverty. These small reservoirs are mostly located in Northern Ghana and have become an integral component of the communities they serve by supporting multiple livelihood strategies (livestock, fishing, irrigation and domestic use). In the mid-1990s and early 2000s, several donor-led development projects invested in rehabilitating and upgrading these small reservoirs through the inclusion of canal irrigation infrastructures. Most projects established water users associations (WUAs) that were aimed at ensuring sustainable management of the upgraded schemes. The underlying hypothesis was that local communities tend to have greater incentives than external actors to maintain their natural resources base. Organizing local farmers in a WUA would then increase their sense of ownership, leading to better performance of the system. Evidence from northern Ghana showed that WUAs have had mixed results. There is evidence of some WUAs having positive impacts. However, it is also clear that most WUAs fail to live up to expectation. This paper argues that the relative failure of WUAs is mostly due to the implementation approach that was adopted for their establishment during past development projects, specifically, the lack of attention given to the complex social fabric and the multiple actors and livelihood strategies that organized around small reservoirs. Past development projects re-iterated the model of “technology transfer” but, this time, by promoting an “institutional fix”. Government and donors should not only invest in infrastructure rehabilitation but also in soft components (organization, capacity, extension) that need to be embedded in the local social fabric.
