Water Governance in Gash Spate System (Sudan)
Title: Water Governance in Gash Spate System (Sudan)
Description: The Gash irrigation scheme is located in Kassala province, East of the Republic of the Sudan. This large irrigation scheme of 100,000 ha was set up by the government in the 1920s to settle poor nomadic people into a cash economy growing cotton. The scheme went into serious decline in the 1970s, and further drought spells and security problems have led to increased pressure on meagre resources.
