Abstract

Conflict and competition in the utilization of water resources had caused a lack of synchronization of watermanagement in upstream, middle and downstream areas. The Program for Payment of Irrigation WaterResources Services (PIWRS) is a policy for watershed protection as well asquantity, quality, and availability(QQA) for irrigation improvement. The objective of this study was to examine the causal relationship betweenthe QQA parameters in the upstream Musi River basin area (16,116.73 hectares or 26.70% of the total MusiRiver Basin area) towards irrigation water utilization behavior based on the rationality formula fordistribution of upstream-middle-downstream irrigation areas. This study followed the Attribute-BasedMethod (ABM), which is based on farmers’ assessment to attributes or characteristics of goods or Servicesof Irrigation Water Resources (IWRS). The utility values analysis of QQA behavior in the Kepahiang irrigationwater utilization area indicated that irrigati
