This thesis provides a meta-analysis of the investment models for financing global tailor institutional and policy measures for fostering public private investments in irrigation. irrigation infrastructure with emphasis on socio economic issues such as equity, efficiency, cost-recovery, and environmental sustainability.Previous hydrologic-economic modelling advances and frameworks areal so reviewed. An integrated hydrologic-agronomic-economic model called HAEMAN (Hydrologic-Agronomic-Economic MANagement) model is developed in GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System). The essential principle of the hydrology model is mass balance both for water flows and water use. The model is calibrated for the lower Murrumbidgee Catchment of the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia. The model was developed to support analysis of policy options affecting the use of water resources in the catchment for multiple uses including urban water supply, irrigatedagriculture, and the environment.
