Om boka

The present Bulletin presents a complete response from the 'Technical Committee of ICOLD on Dams and Water Transfer (CDWT)' to the Terms of Reference. It starts with related global information, brings out related efforts made in countries with completely differing climate, economy, population distribution etc. about present status within and between river basins & countries - both surplus and or deficit, while recognizing the crucial role played by dams in water transfer to needy regions. It then enumerates guidelines followed in considering various options, while identifying geographical issues, limited by political territories & legal issues like water treaties. Essentially then, it dwells on possible need, potential and problems in water transfers that must be handled to overcome B/C issues faced by needy countries. In order to assist concerned professionals, the Bulletin finally elaborates on objections raised by different stake-holders in the subject and provides answers generated globally. The on-going debate world-over about WRD versus environmental impacts is then dealt with to help Member-countries overcome various issues.


Le present Bulletin presente une reponse complete du " Comite Technique sur les barrages et les transferts d'eau ". Il commence par des informations mondiales, fait ressortir les efforts deployes dans des pays au climat, a l'economie, a la repartition de la population, etc. completement differents sur l'etat actuel au sein et entre les bassins fluviaux et les pays - a la fois excedentaire et / ou deficitaire, tout en reconnaissant le role crucial joue par les barrages dans le transfert d'eau vers les regions necessiteuses. Il enumere ensuite les lignes directrices suivies pour considerer diverses options, tout en identifiant les problemes geographiques, limites par les territoires politiques et les questions juridiques comme les traites sur l'eau. Essentiellement, il s'attarde donc sur les besoins, le potentiel et les problemes possibles des transferts d'eau qui doivent etre traites pour surmonter les problemes auxquels sont confrontes les pays dans le besoin. Afin d'aider les professionnels concernes, le Bulletin elabore enfin les objections soulevees par les differents acteurs du sujet et apporte des reponses generees globalement. Le debat en cours dans le monde entier par rapport aux impacts environnementaux est ensuite traite pour aider les pays membres a surmonter divers problemes.

Om forfatteren

The Commission Internationale des Grands Barrages (CIGB) / International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) is a non-governmental international organization which provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience in dam engineering.

The organization leads the profession in ensuring that dams are built safely, efficiently, economically, and without detrimental effects on the environment. Its original aim was to encourage advances in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of large dams and their associated civil works, by collecting and disseminating relevant information and by studying related technical questions.

Since the late 1960s, focus was put on subjects of current concern such as dam safety, monitoring of performance, reanalysis of older dams and spillways, effects of ageing and environmental impact. More recently, new subjects include cost studies at the planning and construction stages, harnessing international rivers, information for the public at large, and financing.
