The Takkapala communal irrigation system was studied in the Malino village in Indonesia. The resource harvested is water for irrigation. Although an extensive description of the institutions in the Takkapala Communal System was not presented in this case study on irrigation, the authors did highlight the impact of national subsidies on the rehabilitation of two small-scale river-diversion irrigation systems in Indonesia. Subsidies were substantial inducements to the mobilization of local resources. The boundaries of appropriated resources correspond to village boundaries. This case on the Takkapala Communal System was part of the original CPR database developed in the 1980s by Edella Schlager and Shui Yan Tang at Indiana University. The original CPR report an be found under the CPR tab in the Institutional Analysis section below.
