Abstract

Water is an important element for life and a vital factor to economic and social development of countries. It carries an increasing importance for the developing countries in the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Central Asia; because of their rapid population growth, urbanization and limited renewable resources. A well-defined framework to analyze policies and options would help determine water resources management policies for these countries. The World Bank, during the past three decades has contributed to the development of management tools suitable to the countries' needs for resources and capacities.
