Health and Irrigation: 2 volumes

The aim of this book is to create awareness among development workers and policy makers that irrigation development involves the risk of spreading vector-borne diseases (e.g. schistosomiasis and malaria) and that preventive measures can be incorporated into the design and operational procedures of irrigation projects. Volume 1 contains the main subject chapters and three technical notes. Volume 2 contains a series of practical examples and two case-studies. A geographical overview of vector-borne diseases and the vectors themselves are included in the appendix.
