The Andhra Model and its Replicability in India

Edited by: Rakesh Hooja, Ganesh Pangare, K.V. Raju

Water sector reforms are underway in many countries of the world today. Mexico, Turkey and Philippines are some of the countries where the concept of Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) has been tried and tested. In India, Andhra Pradesh is the first state to introduce PIM throughout the state. Today, the Andhra model is being watched with great interest and is being replicated in other states of India as well. This volume puts together some of the best research studies on the PIM programme being implemented in Andhra Pradesh. These give an insight into the political processes behind the reforms, the administrative, institutional and management issues, and finally based on the analysis, the way forward for the programme in Andhra Pradesh and a cumulative learning experience for other states in India and the world to incorporate and implement. The book has not only tackled theoretical issues and concepts but also practical ground level realities regarding PIM.
