About the product

Headwaters are the source of freshwater resources, the margins of drainage basins, and the first and zero order basins that surround every catchment. This book provides an understanding of current and prior situations and provides scientific analyses of local and regional headwater issues in India and Africa. The authors analyse the current situation through field experiments that provide reliable information on the status of headwater resources in these regions.
