Abstract

It was the original intent of this paper to isolate the conditions which would, in a particular regional setting, make water development both necessary and sufficient for the initiation of a self-sustaining regional growth process. The paper ends up arguing that very seldom can we expect water development to be either necessary or sufficient, once growth has moved beyond its earliest stages. Growth and its economic organization are much more complicated and yet more flexible and resilient than that.

The conclusions may be useful guidelines to future regional planning activities. At a minimum, the paper may stimulate further discussion of the Water Project's role in the Integrated Regional Development Project.
