    Abstract

    In the 70s, the OECD set up an interdisciplinary team to develop and test guidelines for the appraisal o f multipurpose water projects (dams, flood control, irrigation, etc). Two prerequistes were identified: the customer must have sufficient knowledge to define the terms of reference, and the study leader must be conversant with the other disciplines involved.The team produced guidelines for the kinds of report to be prepared at each of five stages in appraising and evaluating such projects. These guidelines were then tested by local teams in seven countries, and final revisions were incorporated into an OECD book published in 1985.
