Overview

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 présent Bulletin présente une réponse complète du « Comité Technique sur les barrages et les transferts d’eau ». Il commence par des informations mondiales, fait ressortir les efforts déployés dans des pays au climat, à l'économie, à la répartition de la population, etc. complètement différents sur l'état actuel au sein et entre les bassins fluviaux et les pays - à la fois excédentaire et / ou déficitaire, tout en reconnaissant le rôle crucial joué par les barrages dans le transfert d'eau vers les régions nécessiteuses. Il énumère ensuite les lignes directrices suivies pour considérer diverses options, tout en identifiant les problèmes géographiques, limités par les territoires politiques et les questions juridiques comme les traités sur l'eau. Essentiellement, il s'attarde donc sur les besoins, le potentiel et les problèmes possibles des transferts d'eau qui doivent être traités pour surmonter les problèmes auxquels sont confrontés les pays dans le besoin. Afin d'aider les professionnels concernés, le Bulletin élabore enfin les objections soulevées par les différents acteurs du sujet et apporte des réponses générées globalement. Le débat en cours dans le monde entier par rapport aux impacts environnementaux est ensuite traité pour aider les pays membres à surmonter divers problèmes.

Author Information

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.
