Sustainable Asset Management System for Irrigation
3:30–5:00 p.m. (GMT +8), Tuesday, Zoom
Enhancing irrigation service delivery requires improved management of assets in irrigation systems since this underpins the performance of formal irrigation schemes. Against this need, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has developed a software package, SAMS4i, that allows individual scheme managers and irrigation departments to input and track the status of their key assets as well as assess spatial variability within individual scheme performance. It also allows irrigation departments and development banks to view and compare assets across multiple schemes or even across countries.
This webinar (i) showed the functionality of the SAMS4i as an introduction to a discussion between IWMI and ADB colleagues on improving the software capability and presentation of results to maximize its utility for different irrigation interests and users, and (ii) highlighted linkages to other research and development between IWMI and ADB.
