Abstract

Water management in rural areas is becoming more complex, increasing the need to communicate more intensely with water users. The trend to decentralize decision making in water management and to make those who render water management services answerable to the clients of their services, only enforces this. The intention of this report is to acquaint the community with a technical training in the methods and techniques that social scientists apply when working with farmers. They can be either managers responsible for all operations of a project or water management organization, staff charged with the task to supervise social scientists, or staff working together with social scientists and applying their results. The report may also be appreciated by social scientists who wish to refresh their knowledge
