About the product

Rapid urban population growth and expansion of industrialization are factors that have resulted in indiscriminate discharging of industrial and human wastes into rivers. This publication presents guidelines on technical approaches as well as institutional, statutory, planning, administrative and regulatory approaches relevant to the protection and rehabilitation of rivers, and how to apply them. The guidelines cover the management of both point and diffuse sources of pollution from urban and rural areas. Country experiences in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and the United States.
