Flexibility vs Inertia in irrigation water management

Flexibility vs Inertia in irrigation water management
Flexibility vs Inertia in irrigation water management
The physical infrastructure of many existing irrigation systems was designed on fixed criteria such as available water resources, cropped areas, water supply system for the 1:4 drought year. Water management and delivery is also fixed at the outset of a project (continuous, rotational, on demand). These systems are often 20-50 years old and water management is still based on these original designs even if cropped areas/ crop types / water availability has changed. Staff /institutional arrangements in large systems often contain a high degree of inertia, so we need to understand flexible will irrigation systems in the future?

Abstract

The physical infrastructure of many existing irrigation systems was designed on fixed criteria such as available water resources, cropped areas, water supply system for the 1:4 drought year. Water management and delivery is also fixed at the outset of a project (continuous, rotational, on demand). These systems are often 20-50 years old and water management is still based on these original designs even if cropped areas/ crop types / water availability has changed. Staff /institutional arrangements in large systems often contain a high degree of inertia, so we need to understand flexible will irrigation systems in the future?
