Abstract: "This article focuses on the development and provision of larger-scale water supplies at the river basin and watershed levels (in contrast to, say, urban supplies) in water-short, semi-arid areas where irrigated agriculture represents an historically important water use. As urban areas and industrialization develop - often accompanied by increased concern about environmental quality - reallocating water from irrigated agriculture to urban, industrial and environmental purposes becomes a major issue - in fact, a necessary condition for continuing efficient economic development."
