Water pricing and the performance evaluation of irrigation schemes: the case of the Hamiz irrigation scheme in Algeria



Water pricing and the performance evaluation of irrigation schemes: the case of the Hamiz irrigation scheme in Algeria



Journal of Rural Economics (Special Issue): 565-572



This study assesses the performance of the Hamiz irrigation scheme in Algeria before and after the reforms implemented by the government (i.e., the transfer of the management of irrigation schemes from the government to irrigation agencies, accompanied by water pricing reform), and assesses the impact of water pricing on irrigation management. Primary data were collected in 2004 through questionnaire interviews with 57 farmers.
