    Étapes et stratégies de l’élaboration des politiques de gestion des ressources en eaux agricoles: Enseignements de programmes de modernisation menés en Asie 2008
    Also available in:

    Les performances de la gestion des systèmes d’irrigation sont très souvent inférieures aux attentes, mais aussi de plus en plus complexes, pour trois raisons majeures : la diversification des services proposés aux utilisateurs (y compris non agricoles), la concurrence croissante pour l’eau et la nécessité de rentabiliser. Une gestion moderne et très performante requiert, non seulement d’utiliser des techniques adaptées, mais aussi de disposer d’un environnement institutionnel et politique p ropice accompagné de programmes de renforcement des capacités. L’une des difficultés consiste à trouver l’équilibre entre flexibilité (pour s’adapter aux spécificités des projets) et cohérence forte à l’échelon national. Une autre est de choisir des politiques suffisamment pratiques, que les opérateurs locaux peuvent mettre en oeuvre ou respecter. Il convient également d’augmenter les capacités des acteurs, à tous les niveaux. L’élaboration des stratégies et des programmes de modernisa tion de la gestion requiert donc de disposer d’une approche cohérente associant les niveaux du projet et de l’État. La division NRLW de la FAO a mis au point des approches combinant l’évaluation des projets sur le terrain et la planification de la modernisation (RAP-MASSCOTE) basées sur la création d’une typologie des systèmes d’irrigation permettant de faire remonter les problèmes et les solutions au niveau national afin de décider des politiques les plus judicieuses.

    Modernization of the irrigation system in Mounshaat-Al-Asad Irrigation Scheme: MASSCOTE workshop, Aleppo Syria
    Results and plan for modernization
    2009
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This report presents the results from a regional training workshop on MASSCOTE which was held at Aleppo, Syria in 2009. A total of twenty Irrigation and Agriculture engineers from Egypt, Jordan, and Syria participated in the training workshop focusing on MASSCOTE application in Mounshaat-Al-Asad scheme in Aleppo Governorate. It was organized to achieve the following objectives: a) To launch FAO’s regional initiative on modernization of irrigation management in the Near East; b) To introduce the MASSCOTE and RAP methodologies to participants from different countries in the region through real-case applications; c) To increase the capacity of the participants on usage of modern techniques and approaches of irrigation management and operation; d) To develop insights on the performance of management in Mounshaat-Al-Asad irrigation system and suggest some specific strategies to managers of the scheme on conceptualising the modernization of irrigation management; e) To produce food for thoug ht for decision-makers in Syria before they engage in investment plans and on how to ensure these diagnoses and solutions are investigated properly in modernization projects; f) To validate a specific module of MASSCOTE- MASSLIS which is dedicated to lift irrigation system; g) To prepare follow up studies in Egypt and Jordan; and h) To produce some key recommendations for the concluding regional workshop.
