Systems- & people-centred water and irrigation

Research interests and themes

I have worked with and studied agricultural water management since 1983, initially at the field, block and irrigation system level in Swaziland.  I study five interrelated themes of research, grouped here:

Participatory polycentric water governance and allocation including games

Resource efficiency complexity and the paracommons

Irrigation infrastructure, livelihoods and policy

Ecosystem and vector water studies

Performance, equity and justice in water security and allocation
