Abstract

This paper examines the effect of communal irrigation plants on income and agricultural activities of rural households in Vietnam. Household-level and commune-level data from VHLSS 2010-2012 were analyzed using fixed effect regression. The paper finds no evidence of significant impacts of communal irrigation plants on households’ income, income structure and rice cultivation activities. These results imply the weak operation and maintenance of public irrigation plants as well as the lack of integrated water resource management to ensure water input for irrigation systems.
