The latest national development plan in Turkey emphasizes that priority is given to water, food and nutrition security in a competitive environment, hence, infrastructure investments in sectors like irrigation will continue with an intention to support economic productivity in the medium and long term. Yet, these macro-level policies require operationalization through the practices of adequate institutions. The paper will first critically analyze how these macro level policies are put into practice by concerned public and private institutions with a particular focus on water user associations.
