dc.description.abstract he aim of this study was to assess the effects of multiple institutions in water policy implementation. Four specific research objectives guided the study, namely to assess the actors‟ roles and interactions in water allocation processes, to explore and assess the water allocation processes and institutions, to identify and assess institutional and noninstitutional factors affecting water allocation processes, and to examine prevalence of conflicts and factors contributing to their occurrence in water allocation processes. The study was conducted in Mkindo and Kiroka irrigation schemes and employed the Exploratory Sequential Mixed Approach, whereby the dominant approach was qualitative, complemented by quantitative techniques. The data collection methods were in-depth interviews, documentary reviews, focus group discussions, direct observations for the qualitative data and questionnaire for quantitative data. Qualitative data were analysed using qualitative content analysis and explanation building techniques. The descriptive statistical analysis technique and Binary Logistic Regression Model were used to analyse the quantitative data. Findings revealed existence of poor coordination among actors, multiple institutions and lack of adherence to formal allocation principles. Moreover, the study ascertained prevalence of water users‟ conflicts in the selected schemes and analysed the factors influencing their occurrence. The results indicated that these factors were significant at p< 0.05 and p < 0.01. Generally, the study has concluded that multiple water resource institutions affect water allocation processes and influence users‟ conflicts; however, the nature and scope of their effects depend on the physical, material, bio-physical and governance systems in which the resource is embedded. To enhance water allocation processes in the selected schemes, the study recommends strengthening of coordination units and multi-stakeholders platforms, improvement of capacity for the government agents and enhancing government support for the water users. en_US
