A growing population requires more food. Many farmers who grow dry season rice lack irrigation, not only because of lack of water in the catchment, but also because of the lack of irrigation infrastructure and a proper water allocation mechanism. This paper reports on research conducted in Stung Chrey Bak catchment in Kompong Chhnang province to explore the interactions between water use, water policy, physical systems and institutional frameworks for catchment management.
