Abstract:

The United States has no water policies and strategies despite the fact that much of the billions of dollars provided for developing countries water projects emanates either directly or indirectly from the United States. Inadequate maintenance and the need to rehabilitate community water supply systems are major obstacles to achieving the U.N. Water Decade goal of providing clean water and adequate sanitation for all by 1990. This report concludes that the United States should exert more active leadership in influencing the allocation of available funds for, and in removing constraints to, water resources development.
