It can be said that, in cooperation with the WHO, it was again possible to give more substance in 1974 to the aims of the IRC which are directed towards the solution of global water supply problems, by promoting research, carrying out development projects and demonstrations for developing areas, the transfer and exchange of technical and scientific information and the initiation and guidance of training programmes. Owing to the lack of specialized personnel, only little attention could be given to the latter aspect. Receptivity of existing problems and of cooperation on an international level, as well as its tenacity in pursuing a policy directed toward effective "follow-up" have, this year, resulted in the IRC assuming a promising role amongst organisations working on water supply problems throughout the world.
