This is a website which contains a package of training material for the development and implementation of a Participatory Training & Extension Programme in Farmers' Water Management. The two main documents are The Guidelines and Farmers' Training Manual for PT&E-FWM. Besides this, the training package contains a collection of various documents and audiovisual materials to help in the development and implementation of training programmes for farmers and field staff in order to facilitate the introduction of appropriate water control technologies and better water management techniques. Participatory Training and Extension (PT&E) has proved to be an effective tool to establish the appropriate support structure to assist and advise farmers in irrigation development and management. PT&E is in particular useful for small holder irrigation and in the case of irrigation management transfer programmes. Farmers Water Management (FWM) refers to all water control techniques, technologies and related activities under the direct control and responsibility of farmers. FWM is carried out on an individual basis, by each farmer on his/her own field and farm as well as by a group of farmers, who jointly manage a hydraulic unit and share water from the same source.
