Watersellers free pdf "The Water Sellers" analyzes an innovation in rural development whereby groups of landless labourers in Bangladesh are assisted to invest in irrigation equipment and to provide an irrigation service to farmers. Water for irrigation, as the second most important rural means of production, can in effect be owned by the landless if they can obtain pumpsets and make agreements to supply farmers. Farmers can be interested in such a service when their holdings are so fragmented and dispersed that any mechanized irrigation technology becomes impossible for fragmented plots, and when co-operative arrangements among farmers fail. Proshika, a Bangladeshi non-governmental organization (NGO), has undertaken this programme since 1980 - supporting landless groups with consciousness-raising activity, skills training and credit. The initial incredulity of the irrigation community has now been overcome, and the model is slowly being adopted more widely for irrigation and other agricultural services. This book consists of a close examination of the project experience from a policy, institutional, economic and financial perspective, including implications for NGOs as development and organizations.
