This publication is the result of several years of work on the subject. Efforts began in 1995 when the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provided funding for a collaborative Initiative between the Social Policy Group of IUCN-The World Conservation Union and the Population Reference Bureau (PRB), to study the relationship between water resources and population dynamics in the developing world.
Through that Initiative, nine country teams - each including a water resource specialist and a population specialist - were recruited by the IUCN. The teams produced case studies on the population variables and water resources in a community, project area or river basin in their country. On completion of their research, they were joined by a multidisciplinary team of experts to present their findings at a workshop at the IUCN's World Conservation Congress in Montreal, Canada, in October, 1996. This book contains proceedings from that workshop.
