PN 2014-14: Process, Nature, and Impacts of Irrigation System Rehabilitation

Irrigation systems undergo rehabilitation to maintain developed irrigation service areas and close the gap between service areas and actual areas irrigated. A rapid appraisal of the government`s irrigation program was commissioned to the Philippine Institute for Development Studies to assess how well these goals have been achieved. Historical data on areas reported to have been rehabilitated, restored, and generated nationwide were analyzed vis-a-vis trends on irrigation service areas and actual areas irrigated. The rehabilitation process was studied to gain insights on the planning and implementation of rehabilitation projects and how the adopted processes or practices could have influenced the results of rehabilitation.
