Muhammad Ashfaq , Abdul Saboor and Munawar Hussain

Abstract:
This article reviews the Irrigation Management as a measure to mitigate various dimensions of poverty, particularly prevailing in the rural segments of society. Irrigation plays a crucial role to fight against poverty and thus has been the largest recipients of public agricultural investment in the developing world. Over the last 30 years, billions of dollars have been spent to assure water supplies, to raise yields and to improve rural livelihoods. In Pakistan irrigation charges amounted to only five percent of the crop expenses. Communities at the tail end areas are victims of water scarcity. National Drainage Program project would directly benefit tenant farmers, small holders and tail enders in the form of improved availability of irrigation and drainage facilities, efficient delivery services and reduced costs.
