Oversight of irrigation in farming communities can present political challenges
The irrigation group members split up into sub groups, each with 5 - 20 members. Each subgroup has their own irrigation site, and members divide plots among themselves in this site. The equipment is owned by the main group, which allocates days to the subgroups. The members of each subgroup appoint one or two representatives to be on the management committee of the main group, and oversee maintenance and investment in equipment.
