The conditions for collective action: land tenure and farmers' groups in the Rajasthan canal project

, : The conditions for collective action: land tenure and farmers' groups in the Rajasthan canal project. Gatekeeper Series Sustainable Agriculture Programme, International Institute for Environment and Development ( 57): 17 pp.

Five key irrigation tasks are examined to show how farmers cultivating land under short-term share and fixed-rent tenancies experience serious limitations in evolving organizations for increasing their control over local irrigation management, focusing on detailed case study material from two contrasting areas in the Rajasthan Canal Project, India. The two clusters of settlements chosen for the comparative study each consist of three contiguous chaks.
