At the end of 1971, 28 institutions, selected and designated by WHO, were collaborating with I.R.C. The network of these Collaborating Institutions consists of universities, research establishments and other bodies active in the water supply field.
The year 1971 can be described as the take-off phase of the Centre: a new activity has to find its way within existing systems of cooperation and relations. It has to prove its value before it can expect the assistance of all concerned. The Centre has the feeling that the point has been reached whereby the majority of the Collaborating Institutions acknowledge the place of the Centre and the value and mutual interest of the exchange of information by the Centre.
This report gives a survey of the activities of the Centre during 1971 with the sincere hope that 1972 will bring the final basis of a balanced programme for the coming years.
