This video describes the Irrigation Improvement Project in Yemen – that rehabilitated two large spate irrigation systems – Wadi Zabid and Wadi Tuban. A systematic participatory approach was followed – starting with Water Users Groups that then came together in Water Users Associations (WUAs). The systems as a whole were managed by an Irrigation Council – bringing together WUAs and local government. IIP stated its work with strengthening local organization but also worked on the rehabilitation of infrastructure and on agricultural extension.
