This paper analyses how Bank-financed irrigation projects deal with the basicorganisational characteristics of water user associations (WUA) in their design and approach. It assesses whether these organisational characteristics are taken into account and what projects must do to increase the support provided to their establishment or strengthening. It also discusses therelative benefits of relying on organisations that already function among water users as opposed to attempting to establish new ones.
