Deals with water resource & its exploitation in tropical Africa from an engineering point of view, giving an insight into the wide range of problems in water development & providing general guidelines for future planning. Considers such issues as the mechanics of the hydrological cycle, the origins of wide variations in rainfall, the potential for water resources development in pastoral areas & low cost methods of exploiting these resources, & problems of water quality. Includes some recommendations on key areas which play an important role in the successful implementation & continued operation of schemes for water supply.
