This book examines the nature and impact of irrigation system rehabilitation on increasing the actual area irrigated by the publicly funded canal irrigation systems of the Philippines. It proposes a system diagnosis approach for the development of a more appropriate and climate-smart irrigation modernisation plan. It investigates the validity of the design assumptions on percolation and the prospects of water availability estimation as well as characterizes the system operation and management. The book outlines a strategy for formulating a modernisation plan for the case study systems and for government-owned canal irrigation systems in the Philippines in general.
