Capacity Building

The institutional reforms process are basically aimed at better governance, decentralization and farmers participation in management and sustainability. On the other hand, this transfer of management from administrative set up to Participatory Irrigation Management through Farmer Organization depends heavily on commitment of the Farmers which could only be evoked by creating awareness about new system and the benefits that it offers.

The management of irrigation system is quite a technical subject. Therefore, the concerned officials of Irrigation Department and the FOs involved in new system of Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) are required to be trained to undertake responsibility and perform their duties. 

Likewise, trainings in multi dimensional disciplines are planned for them to perform their prescribed roles and responsibilities so that they could understand, upgrade and use their capacity for operating this transformed irrigation system successfully and efficiently. These trainings produce competent practitioners with the skill, knowledge and attitudes to carry out their assigned jobs. Therefore, a variety of training sessions are being planned for different target groups keeping in view their training needs and their potential role in the new setup.


The objective of training & capacity building program is to bring about behavioral & organizational change in water sector and enable partners to manage this change on sustainable basis. The other main objectives and purpose of designing such trainings are as under: 

  • To streamline the activities of newly established FOs in the following aspects.
