ICID, under its policy to extend its knowledge dissemination wider, is initiating Webinar Services for its members in particular and wider irrigation and drainage community in general. This is the Fourth Webinar being given under “ICID Webinar Services”. ICID has invited Dr. Robina Wahaj, Technical Officer, Land and Water Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), a specialist in irrigation and water engineering to speak on this important topic.


FAO developed a methodology called Mapping System and Services for Canal Operation Techniques (MASSCOTE). Since its early stages, more than 30 systems worldwide have been audited using the MASSCOTE methodology. MASSCOTE integrates and complements tools such as the rapid appraisal procedure (RAP) and benchmarking to enable a complete sequence of diagnosis of external and internal performance indicators, and the design of practical solutions for improved management and operation of the system.
