Abstract In Surinam, the contribution of the exploitation of the natural resources (minerals and forest products) is gradually decreasing. Subsequently, the agricultural sector (mainly the rice sector) becomes more important for the national income and food security. The rice sector, however, has become less competitive as the knowledge on recent developments in cultivation practices and land & water management is poor; the organization of the operation and maintenance is fragmentized; the infrastructure has been neglected, and; vocational education facilities in the Nickerie district, the main rice cultivation district, are lacking. For sustainable development appropriate land and water development strategies have to be developed. A collaborative research project was initiated to develop recommendations how to improve the water management systems, both a field and system level.
