Water for food and rural development: approaches and initiatives in South Asia
Sage Publications, 11 août 2000 - 377 pages
The concept of integrated water resources management has rapidly gained widespread currency. As attempts to formulate a global vision for water are on the increase, it is important to clarify this concept so that it does not degenerate into an empty slogan. This important volume of 17 original essays, establishes the crucial relationship between the multiple uses of water resources on the one hand and food security and rural development on the other, and suggests innovative approaches and methodologies that can help resolve the deadlock in water resources development and management.
