THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT 29 Indian canal systems are large, centralized hierarchies in charge of all functions. .

If they are not derived directly from a sector-wide or sub-sectoral strategy, they should be made consistent with it. In the hierarchy of governmental decisions, programs and projects normally are subordinate to and derived from policies, and the latter, in turn, often are developed within the framework of a strategy. In the real world of decision making with multiple and conflicting interests and actors, things do not work out so neatly, but the attempt to co-ordinate policies, programs and projects can make them all more effective.

To achieve the required consensus and coordination, often it is necessary to undertake extensive negotiations with interest groups, both within the sector and outside the sector, and with international agencies as well. Through this process, a strategy will be molded to political realities, but the clearer the initial vision and the more cogent the technical justifications, then the better the chances that the main thrusts of the strategy – or at least some of them – will emerge intact from such a process.
