Auteurs :
EL-ASHRY, M.T.
GLAZOVSKY, n.f.

Description :
Water ressources in many arid and semiarid regions are being overexploited and some important groundwater aquifers are nearing economic exhaustion. Many regions are also experiencing conflict over the reallocation of limited supplies, particularly from agriculture to other uses. Problems encountered are the product of inappropriate implementation of existing knowledge and from the tendency to ignore past experience.
