Although in recent times MULTI has diversified its services into many fields, irrigation sector is the core of its activities. MULTI's involvement in this sector coincides with the introduction of local consulting activities in DOI projects, and has to it's credit experience in most of the irrigation related consulting assignments, executed during the last two decades. During this period, MULTI has witnessed evolvement of several policies and strategies adopted by the executing agencies and shares the responsibility for its success and failures.
Experience with FMIS
MULTI's initial experience with FMIS of Talkulo Khola Hill Irrigation Project (1981), Gunjantar Irrigation Project (1982) and Bhirpani Irrigation Project (1982) was thought provoking in terms of conceptualization of beneficiary participation potentials. Subsequently MULTI was entrusted with detail feasibility study of two noted farmer's managed irrigation projects of terai and hills in the year 1984-85, namely Arjun Khola Irrigation Project and Phalangu Khola Irrigation Project. It was an opportunity to assess project implementation practices involving beneficiary participation in project preparation, implementation, monitoring and operation & maintenance. MULTI was able to identify problems andconstraint to O & M in these FMIS. Arjun Khola I.P. had been duly constructed under EEC financing, in accordance with the proposed recommendations of the study. Accordingly, MULTI utilized experience gained in these projects for Daha Khola Irrigation Project (1988).
Water Use Inventory Study of several districts in Nepal conducted by Water and Energy Commission Secretariat (WECS) was a major step towards identifying the potential of FMIS in Nepal. MULTI was entrusted for the study of six districts and took leading part in emphasizing the study for identification and appraisal of FMIS throughout the country.
With the initiation of the Irrigation Sector Program in February, 1988 HMG/N approach to irrigation development included concerns for : (a) making the irrigation development more cost effective through the adoption of appropriate technologies (b) speeding up implementation through investment in quick results generating small and medium scale irrigation schemes and (c) building indigenous institutional capacity. MULTI executed two projects for detailed feasibility studies namely Melchada Khola Irrigation Project (1989) and Majhgaon Irrigation Project (1989) under ISP/DOI. Besides, it was involved in the project identification, selection, formation of WUAs and pre-feasibility study of several ISP sub-projects in Sankhuwasabha, Terharthum and Jhapa districts of Nepal in the year 1990-91.
MULTI's culmination of its efforts to strengthen WUAs and experience with FMIS, is well exhibited in the recently completed detail feasibility study of one of the largest FMIS (24,000 ha GCA) of the country, namely Rani, Jamara and Kulariya Kulo Irrigation Project. This project executed by IDSP/DOI with the financial assistance of IDA/WB, has been approached under "The Irrigation Policy 1992 of HMG/Nepal". One of the main outcome of the study is recommend actions of measures for strengthening existing institutional framework of WUA, leading to their effective participation in the implementation and O & M of the system.
Experience in Public Irrigation System
MULTI had been involved in most of the major public irrigation projects in the country. MULTI's involvement in water management activities of Narayani Irrigation Project and Sunsari Morang Irrigation Project Stage II had given an opportunity to work closely with the WUGs. MULTI's personnel were involved in group formation, training to WUGs, assistance in legalization of WUGs through registration at district offices and preparation of maps and land ownership list for an effective management of irrigation water and possible collection of water tariff. Experience gained by MULTI in some of the major irrigation projects are enlisted as below:

|Asset Management Plan of Kankai Irrigation|
Narrative Description of the Project:
The Kankai Irrigation System was constructed under the loan assistances from Asian Development Bank (AsDB) in two phases. The construction works commenced in 1971 and the first phase was completed in 1981 developing the irrigation networks in about 5000 ha. The second phase was commenced in 1980 and completed in 1991 with the extension of the infrastructures in about 2000 ha area out of targeted 3000 ha. The remaining areas are developed partially as was observed from the secondary canals S-17 to S-21 having earthen works only. The tertiary canal net works are not built in this undeveloped area. The Sizes of the tertiary canal and the secondary canals have varying service areas from 5 ha to more than 700 ha. Direct outlets from the main canal are provided numbering 31 nos. with also varying sizes. Uniform tertiary unit design as adopted in SMIP, Narayani, and Mahakali Irrigation Systems are not adopted here. Water management in such scenario will be difficult for rotation and equitable distribution. At present the WUAs and the office field staff decide with mutual understanding regarding the rotational delivery of the water sources during the scarcity. As reported from the field the irrigation water is delivered during spring season with one-year rotation between the phase-I and the extension portion. Similarly during winter season rotational practices are scheduled in days among these two main canal sections and also among the secondary canals. It was surprising to note that they get water according to the rotational period; however the farmers felt that it is inadequate for the crop water requirement. Nine Secondary canals are handed over by the office to the WUAs, which are maintained and operated by the farmers to some extent. Other wise the whole maintenance of the system was dependent entirely on the government budget for maintenance.
