The national water system is, for the most part, operated by a government-sponsored public company while municipal and village systems are managed through locally elected councils accountable to the public. Private and national water supplies are regulated by government allocations and pricing policies. In the irrigation sector, performance has been high. Water distribution has been assured and equitable deliveries are timely and irrigation networks generally operate efficiently. System reliability has been one of the main factors enabling the government to adopt policies which moved irrigated agriculture from a labor-intensive, low-investment sector to a commercialized, export-oriented one. Drip and sprinkler systems have replaced surface irrigation methods and high production has been achieved with advanced agricultural practices and skillful farm managementCollection: AGRIS Collection
