To develop, test and sustain follow-up systems and services to water users in order to reach a sustainable operation of irrigated areas, in three different national contexts: Haiti, Cambo- dia, Mali, taking advantage of their specific experiences to enhance exchanges, co-learning and capitalization.


More specifically in Cambodia, the operation and maintenance of irrigation schemes require FWUC to undertake the following general functions: water management, maintenance of infrastructures, irrigation service fee collection, institutional and financial FWUC management.


Looking into details, the proper implementation of these major functions requires a large variety of tasks and skills such as engineering, design, preparation of bidding documents, topography, ac- counting, financial auditing, information management, database and legal advise, amongst many others. Not all of these skills can be learnt by the farmers and not all of them are required perma- nently. The main objective of the project would be to allow FWUC to access services which are: good quality, professional services, adapted to their particular needs and to their stage of devel- opment, affordable and sustainable.
