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".
