Abstract

Using the experience of irrigation schemes in Nigeria, it is argued that the hierarchical authoritarian bureaucracies normally responsible for the management of large scale surface irrigation projects are inappropriate institutions for managing schemes which involve large numbers of small farmers. It is argued that coercive measures designed to obtain farmer co-operation in irrigation schemes should not be needed, provided that real economic incentives, risk insurance and conflict arbitration systems are introduced.
