About the product

The multisectoral nature of water resources development in the context of socio-economic development, as well as the multi-interest utilization of water resources have made the planning of programmes and projects on water and sustainable development a highly complex task. The guidelines in this publication are presented with the hope that, in the future, water-resources development activities and socio-economic development activities would not adversely affect each other. The publication specifically outlines principles and policy options for guidelines on water and sustainable development.
