Title Action research: an appropriate research methodology to develop on-farm drainage systems with farmers with reference to the NRAP Project, Pakistan

Abstract In the period up till 2000 the Netherlands Research Assistance Project (NRAP) ran an Action Research programme to develop a drainage system together with farmers in an area suffering from salinity and waterlogging. Executing parties of NRAP were the International Waterlogging and Salinity Research Institute (IWASRI), Pakistan¿s main research institute in salinity and waterlogging research, and International Institute for Land Reclamation and Improvement (Alterra-ILRI), based in the The Netherlands. The Action Research was an approach to establish an on-farm collective drainage system together with farmers, while at the same time learning how this is done best. This latter aim is achieved by systematically analysing the actions taken by all involved in the drainage development process. Action Research is unique in the sense that conclusions from the analyses are fed back into, and can lead to changes in, the process. The experiences with Action Research in case of the NRAP project lead to the conclusion that the approach has potential for other irrigation and drainage development projects as well.
