Drawing lessons from the results and impacts of Green Revolution have been brought to the fore again as well as the strongly differing effect amongst regions that is under investigation (Bonnis, Maestu., Gomez, 2011; Chronic Poverty Advisory Network, 2012). Identifying the underlying issues of successful implementation or eventual failure is particularly important in the sense that substantial investment will be required to cover about 172 million hectares of irrigation-equipped area by 2050 (FAO, 2019). Irrigation development needs careful review for success in reducing failures and maximizing benefits. The approach of designing irrigation policy has already witnessed shifting to increase effectiveness. Participatory management, responsibility transfers to farmers, equal distribution amongst users, environmentally sound technology and design and institutional development are vivid proof of the efforts to improve irrigated agriculture (Gohar, Amer, Ward, 2015).
