The improvement of the irrigation system performance depends on the intensity and size of public interventions, on the ability of local communities to respond to the stimuli induced by the policies specific to this area and on the management of participation to agriculture modernization in the territory. The study conducted in the rural areas of Braila county focused on the local conditions, on the difficulties of local communities to get involved and participate in the decision making process for the efficient use of the irrigation water, on the analysis of factors with crucial impact on the behaviours of irrigation water users. The participatory support complexity derives from the availability of local communities to coordinate the multitude of economic and social behaviours, from the involvement of rural players, in a permanent process of assuming and management of their own problems.
