Abstract This thesis focuses on smallholder Irrigation Management Reform (IMR) policy models implemented in Mashonaland West and Mashonaland Central provinces of Zimbabwe. In particular it is concerned with how the models were negotiated, recursively shaped, adopted, transformed and accepted into policy by an array of actors spanning across international funding agencies, government ministries, local agencies responsible for smallholder irrigation development, the irrigators and their surrounding communities. The thesis intends to add to the growing body of debate on IMRs by providing information on ‘the reform process,’ an aspect that has been underplayed so far. It also aims to contribute to the development of an irrigation management policy for the smallholder irrigation sector in Zimbabwe that has been lacking to date.
