in Latin America and The Caribbean>

PART A. INTRODUCTION

6. SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS

The findings are summarised in Table 1 and presented as detailed descriptions and case studies in Parts B and C.

  • In Table 1, the technologies are presented by technological group (freshwater augmentation, water quality improvement, wastewater treatment and reuse, and water conservation), showing the specific technologies used; the sector(s) in which they are employed (agriculture: irrigation and/or livestock, domestic water supply, and industry and/or mining); and the countries in which they are applied.
  • In Part B each technology is described in detail, with information on its use and application on the regional level, while in Part C selected technologies are described in detail at the country level.

Thus, it is possible for the user to obtain a comprehensive overview of the technologies presented by reference to the tabular summary, and a detailed understanding of a particular technology by reference to Parts B and C. Technologies of particular interest can be extracted for use in developing freshwater resource management plans by reference to the one-page summaries. Use of these summaries will allow several promising technologies to be examined "side by side".
