Space and the generation of socio-economic inequality on Sri Lanka's irrigation schemes



Space and the generation of socio-economic inequality on Sri Lanka's irrigation schemes



Marga 7(1): 1-32



This paper sets out to demonstrate that there is substantial consistent economic inequality between "top-end" and "tail-end" cultivators on irrigation schemes (that is, those closer or further away from the point at which water is issued into the channel system in gravity flow irrigation schemes).
