About this book

Much has been written and discussed about appropriate sustainable water policy options. However, putting fine ideas into practice is easier said than done, in view of the multiple and complex factors involved. This book takes a look at some of the successes and failures of actual implementation of modern water policy options. It is an attempt to share real practical experience at all levels - local, regional, national and international.
