dc.description.abstractDespite massive efforts and funding to support irrigation development, the increase in irrigated areas has been minimal in the Philippines (Luyun 2015; Inocencio et al. 2016). This is particularly true in Mindanao, where the development of irrigation systems lags relative to Luzon and Visayas (NIA 2017). To expand the irrigation base, new irrigable areas may be served by small-scale systems, such as the communal irrigation systems (CIS) (David 2003). This Policy Note presents an assessment of select CIS in the Philippines. It specifically assessed 90 CIS from 11 provinces in Luzon (Bulacan-Aurora-Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Ilocos Norte, Pampanga-Bataan, Camarines Sur, Benguet, Nueva Vizcaya, Isabela, Cagayan-Batanes, Laguna, and Occidental Mindoro), four provinces in Visayas (Leyte, Iloilo, Capiz, and Bohol), and four provinces in Mindanao (North Cotabato, South Cotabato, Davao del Sur, and Bukidnon). Primary and secondary data were also collected through key informant interviews and focus group discussions among various irrigation management offices (IMOs).
