Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: World Bank Technical Paper No. 360. Recent experience confirms that participation of farmers in managing parts of an irrigation system and collecting water charges usually results in a more efficient use of water. To be effective, farmers in the hydraulic unit would need to organize themselves by establishing a "water users' association." This paper presents a comparative study of the legal framework for these associations in Colombia, India, Mexico, Nepal, the Philippines, and Turkey. Building on the theory that participation of farmers in managing and operating parts of an irrigation system will result in an optimum use of water, the document analyzes in a comparative manner how each of these countries addresses the basic aspects related to the establishment and functioning of such associations. Additional emphasis is placed on the collection of water charges. Language editions also available: * Arabic--Stock No. 14000 (ISBN 0-8213-4000-X) * Russian--Stock No. 14287 (ISBN 0-8213-4287-8).

Inhaltsangabe: How can African countries escape from marginalization, deepening impoverishment and state disintegration in the new era of globalization? Fantu Cheru draws on his experience of many different countries to argue for a way beyond the simple state-led versus market-driven approaches to Africa's development. The international financial institutions must stop their heavyhanded interventions and let countries decide their own development paths. African countries must work within the reality of globalization to renew democracy and improve governance; invest in education; revitalize agriculture, manage their cities, strengthen regional economic integration, and prevent yet more deadly conflicts. These require commonsense and non-dogmatic approaches, learning from local successes, entrepreneurship, and a new generation committed to a new kind of politics.
Fantu Cheru attempts to shed new light on the topic of economic development in Africa. He roots his wide-ranging arguments firmly in the actual realities of what is going on in Africa --the practical lessons to be learned from both mistakes made and the initiatives which have born positive fruit. He argues for a middle way that goes beyond simple state-led versus market-driven approaches to Africa's development.
