        During the past two decades with farmer participation in irrigation management moving to center stage, the traditional view of having a centralized control over the water resources for better management has changed.

Farmer managed irrigation systems in Nepal are often counted as a successful example of community managed resource systems. These systems have faced decades of change in various dimensions ranging from physical changes in the hydro-climatic and meteorological sphere, to transformation in the socio-economic sphere.

The original target was to provide irrigation facilities over 25 ha of land through the rehabilitation of existing farm-managed irrigation systems and the construction of small and medium-sized irrigation schemes in 22 districts of the central and eastern development regions.

We at Farmer Managed Irrigation Systems (FMIS) Promotion Trust, Nepal feel pleasure and privileged to have organized the Third International Seminar on FMIS and Governance Alternatives, the theme of this Trust had organized the First International Seminar on Challenges to FMIS in Kathmandu in March Based on the management of systems, irrigation in Nepal can be broadly categorized into two types: The Farmer Managed Irrigation Systems (FMIS) and the Agency Managed Irrigation Systems (AMIS).

The FMIS in Nepal have had a longer history than the AMIS. For centuries the Nepali farmers have been managing irrigation systems without any outside help.

Traditionally, indigenous irrigation in many countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America has been managed quite well by water users, who design, build, operate, and maintain often sophisticated, but usually small-scale, systems.

Management reforms are considered one of the best alternatives in increasing efficiency of the irrigation systems. Transfer of day-to-day operation and maintenance to farmers is not a new concept. However due to lags, even now it is a hot issue in developing countries and Nepal is not an exception.

In this context of growing argument about the transfer of management of public irrigation Cited by: To save fuel and wear, the engine pumpsets are typically operated at less than full capacity (~ liters per minute).

At that pumping rate it takes a farmer about 4 hours to irrigate a 1-hectare (acre) field. During that period, the pumpset will consume about liters of fuel costing a total of $.
