Appraisal of irrigation projects and related policies and investments Academic Article uri icon


  • Seven examples of analysis with linear programing models are used to illustrate methods of treating interdependence in the appraisal of irrigation projects. The kinds of interdependence analyzed are (1) between investment projects and other policy instruments, (2) among different types of investment projects, and (3) between local and sectorlevel decisions on investment outlays. The applications discussed refer to irrigation districts in the central plateau and northwestern littoral of Mexico. Copyright 1974 by the American Geophysical Union.
