Framework for Effectiveness and Resilience of Irrigation

This research provides the Ministry of Irrigation in Nepal with a framework for building climate resilience in small and medium-scale irrigation systems, including improving irrigation effectiveness, efficiency and equitability in the face of climate change and climate extremes. The research analyses the cross-sector irrigation system, assess how climate change and extreme weather events impact the irrigation system in the short, medium and long term, and develop a set of policies, regulations and technical standards for irrigation system governance and investments in Nepal. The project has a strong component of capacity building of local researchers and practitioners. The project has been designed and presented a research methodology and associated project activities to understand and analyse the impacts of climate change on irrigation from a systems perspective (across sectors), and use this evidence base to provide recommendations to guide future policy, regulatory and investment decisions in irrigation and related sectors.
