Abstract or Introduction
Small scale irrigation is one of the important pillars of the food security strategy of Ethiopian government that designed to promote the food production of small holder farmers. This study was aimed in assessment of the current status and causes of underperformance of the selected small scale irrigation schemes. To meet the objectives, the primary and secondary data were collected. The primary data were collected through household interviews, focus group discussions, key informant interviews, field observation and measurement. The secondary data were collected from office of water resource and irrigation, office of agricultural, and natural resource, and different published materials.
Discharge measurement was done in the canal network to determine the water delivery performance indicators such as conveyance efficiency, relative water supply, and relative irrigation supply of the schemes. The selected physical, financial and agricultural indicators were also used to assess the performance and identify the current status of the schemes.
