Irrigation benchmarking for sustainability

The renewed interest into irrigation medium and large schemes by various IFIs requires filling two principal knowledge gaps : 1) benchmarking of irrigation schemes with new demand on water use efficiencies beyond scheme scale to contribute towards SDGs and others, and 2) capacity development demand to design and manage existing and new scheme investments. This project updates IWMI the existing Online Irrigation Benchmarking (OIBS) Tool through integration of gender indicators into the tool and develops a System Asset Management (SAM) tool to support irrigation managers in improving scheme management.
