Changing paradigms for irrigation development in the Andes; case-study for BoliviaOngoing
In the Andes irrigation development focuses on water supply by improving open canal infrastructure disregarding the evolution towards pressurized irrigation as developed by farmers. Demographic and agricultural growth, exacerbated by climate change and land degradation have increased the water competition leading to conflicts. This project aims to increase research and professional capacities confronting this challenge and innovating the irrigation development policy paradigm shifting from a water-supply to a water-demand management approach.
