In early 1990, several regions in Bolivia suffered from a severe drought. The United States Agency for International Development in Bolivia USAIDB retained the U.S. Corps of Engineers to conduct a professional appraisal of the drought situation. The purpose of this appraisal is to establish a framework which will assist USAIDB, and possibly others, in making water resource investments in Bolivia. This report is the product of a two-month effort on the part of four water resources professionals - the Water Resources Advisory Team from the Mobile, Alabama District of the Corps. The recent drought has highlighted the need for better conservation and management of water resources.
