From large-scale to medium-scale irrigation: taking social factors into consideration in land development schemes. A case study of Boghe and Mdombo-Thiago in the Senegal valley



From large-scale to medium-scale irrigation: taking social factors into consideration in land development schemes. A case study of Boghe and Mdombo-Thiago in the Senegal valley



Cahiers de la Recherche Developpement No.12: 35-43



Medium-scale irrigation schemes, introduced in Boghe (Mauritania) and Mdombo-Thiago (Senegal) in 1979, have been designed to incorporate human and social considerations. In the case of Boghe, land redistribution arrangements were successfully drawn up between the State and farmers on the basis of both traditional land tenure systems and regulations recommended by the State.
