(introduction...)

This part of the Guidelines is a supplement to Part II and contains material to aid those users who are endeavouring to put into action the Strategic Approach described in the previous chapters.

Both in the general text of the Guidelines, and in the checklists in Part II, references have been made to programming concepts and to research and data-collection methodologies, for which further explanations and descriptions are needed. Part III is intended to meet those needs, enabling the user to enhance his or her understanding of unfamiliar ideas, and gain a more complete picture of the range of tools available for undertaking assessments and analyses at various stages of the project cycle.


Explanations of key water-related technical terms in current usage, many of which are central to the application of the strategic approach. Some are treated at greater length in Chapter 13.
