Emerging Public-Private Partnerships in Irrigation Development and Management

As part of its program to analyze key issues related to water for food, the World Bank has prepared a series of background papers: reengaging in Agricultural Water Management, water pricing and cost recovery, and public-private partnership (PPP) in irrigation and drainage (I&D), the subject of this background paper. The objective of this paper is to identify the possible role and opportunities for the private sector to participate with governments and farmers in developing and managing I&D infrastructure. The paper is based o­n a desk study of reports and o­n a series of case studies of selected projects including o­ne example drawn from the Mediterranean namely France.
