dc.description.abstractThe Asian Development Bank (ADB) has recognized the importance of irrigation systems for increasing agricultural productivity and food security, alleviating poverty, and promoting inclusive economic growth among its developing member countries. It has also identified infrastructure as one of its core areas of operations; specifically, it will continue to support rural infrastructure development, particularly in irrigation and water management. ADB’s support to irrigation and water management is also guided and strengthened by its Water for All Policy, which calls for an integrated, crosssectoral, and participatory approach to water management. This policy highlights participation as the centerpiece of any water service endeavors—excluding people who consume water from participation has tended to make solutions to sustainability elusive.
