Knowledge is a dialogue process, therefore it must flow in all possible directions. Another on-going ICID effort is to allow two-way knowledge interaction using virtual communication tools and e-Learning methodologies. A series of “webinars” on emerging Agricultural Water Management topics and global water issues have become a regular feature with satisfactory participation from across the globe despite time-zone limitations of asynchronous seminar sessions in such conditions. The webinar series provides an open global platform for discussions on varying topics with an international as well as national focus.
ICID, under its policy to extend its knowledge dissemination wider, provides these services for its members in particular and wider irrigation and drainage community. The webinars are customized keeping in view the requirement of different professionals working in the Agricultural Water Management sector.

|This Webinar is about the general observation on mediation of underlying challenges of irrigation schemes management under different scale of land holding condition of the farmer in the small medium and large irrigation areas by considering appropriate institutional and organizational arrangement toward sustainable management of irrigation for improving resilience of irrigated agriculture with sustainable agricultural productivity. At this moment, irrigation management under the small, medium and large irrigation schemes are continuously challenged by inappropriate irrigation efficiency due to poor maintenance of irrigation infrastructures under the poor management performances of WUAs, and competitive use of irrigation water. And most recently is the escalating effort of adaptation and resilience to the impact of climate change, in line with adjustment of policy instruments, institutional setup, technology adjustment as well as resources at the local level, have also been given special scrutiny because of their significant roles to affect livelihood of a larger number of irrigated agricultural based population.
