    Supporting capacity development for sustainable agricultural water management The International Programme for Technology and Research in Irrigation and Drainage (IPTRID) is a multi-donor trust fund managed by the IPTRID Secretariat as a Special Programme of FAO. The Secretariat is located in the Land and Water Development division of FAO and draws on a worldwide network of leading centres of excellence in the field of irrigation, drainage and water resources management. IPTRID aims to support ca pacity development for sustainable agricultural water management to reduce poverty enhance food security and improve livelihoods, while conserving the environment. IPTRID provides advisory services and technical assistance to governments and funding institutions to stimulate increased and more effective investment, assisting in the formulation and implementation of capacity development strategies and programmes. IPTRID was created in 1990 by the World Bank and the United Nations Development Prog ramme (UNDP) in collaboration with the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). First located at the World Bank in Washington, the IPTRID Secretariat was transferred in 1998 to the FAO in Rome. IPTRID is developing partnership with an increasing number of funding institutions and governments. During the last ten years, it has been supported by more than 20 international organizations and government agencies and has cooperated with more than 60 partners in about 40 developing c ountries and countries in transition. The present programme is co-financed by FAO, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Spain, the World Bank and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

    The International Programme for Technology and Research in Irrigation and Drainage (IPTRID) is an international multi-donor programme, co-managed by partner organizations, created in 1990 at the request of the International Commission for Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). Its Secretariat, first located at the World Bank, was transferred to FAO in 1998, where it is being hosted, in the Land and Water Development division (AGL) as a Special Programme. IPTRID aims to support capacity development for sustainable water management and increased water productivity in agriculture in developing countries and countries in transition as a means of reducing poverty, enhancing food security and improving livelihoods, while conserving the environment. A central focus is on technology transfer and the uptake of research results. IPTRID acts as a facilitator of integrated capacity development programmes and projects, mobilizing the expertise of a worldwide network of leading institutions in the field of irrigation, drainage and water resources management. Together with its partners, the IPTRID Secretariat provides advisory services and technical assistance to countries and development agencies, for the formulation and implementation of strategies, programmes and projects. During the last ten years, it has been supported by more than twenty international organizations and government agencies. The present programme is cofinanced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO ), the World Bank, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France and Spain.

    This publication is the result of a joint effort by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) in producing a Handbook on small hydraulic structures and devices used in open- channel irrigation distribution systems. There has been general recognition of a need to review the abundant information and experience available on the subject and to condense and dovetail them into a comprehensive and practical Handb ook. Much basic material for the Handbook has been generously provided by National Committees of the ICID and by FAO projects and contacts in Member Countries, while complementary data and information have been assembled from the extensive survey of the literature.
