Training and the Development of Curriculum Standards in On Farm Water Management: Pakistan, 1984-1985.
Bergsma, Harold M.
The document describes the 18-month Phase I of the On Farm Management Project--supported by the World Bank and operated by Colorado State University and the Consortium for International Development--to design more systematic approaches to train people who will work in technical settings related to water management and irrigation channel construction projects in Pakistan. Separate chapters discuss developing a national standard for curriculum and training in on farm water management, evaluating on farm water management training program needs, establishing interdisciplinary program objectives, developing a curriculum guide, developing training modules, training of trainers, developing training programs for adult farmers and water users, and changing the motivation and training of water user associations. The report stresses that the key to improvement of training is the trainer himself. If he is well prepared, knows his material, and uses suitable training approaches which develop requisite skills among trainees, much progress will be made to improve the entire On Farm Water Management system and thereby utilize water resources more effectively in Pakistan.
