Community Management of irrigation water in Khanewal district, Punjab.

We started in 1992 with social mobilization in one village to improve farmer's field channels. Subsequently, we scaled up and demonstrated it was possible to mobilize irrigators for self help in the renovation of Sarkari watercourses in a variety of physical and social situations. Recently, we have mobilized farmers residing across 19 villages to make an apex organization that has been registered by the Punjab Irrigation and Drainage Authority. it will progressively take over management of a 30 kilometer long distributor of the Haveli Canal from the Irrigation Department.
