This chapter examines the role of the state, community and market in deterioration of a national irrigation system in the Philippines. It cites the danger in hastily handing over systems from state to community management without considering the limits of local communities’ organizational capacity. It highlights the need for community-enhancing policies for the efficient management of relatively large-scale local commons.
