Abstract:The authors carried out a country-wide manpower planning study for the irrigation sector. The objectives were to assess the manpower needs and training requirements for irrigation over the next twenty years or more, and to set out a strategy for their realisation. This paper briefly describes the methodology adopted in the study and highlights the main difficulties of irrigation manpower in a country which has only a very short history of formal irrigation development.
