Dear reader

Welcome to the sixth issue of the BASIN-NEWS, the communication and information journal of the Building Advisory Service and Information Network (BASIN).

We are naturally interested in a feed-back from our readers to find out whether the joint information which the journal contains is useful to those whom we would like to reach with it.

In the BASIN-NEWS you will find four independent sections:

- WAS-Section Wall building advisory service

- CAS-Section Cements and binders advisory service

- RAS-Section Roofing advisory service

- EAS-Section Earth building advisory service.

The subscription to BASIN-NEWS is free of charge to readers from developing countries as well as institutions, groups and individuals involved in work for the Third World in Europe and the USA. Please circulate this newsletter and let us know your questions and/or ideas by writing to the respective network partners to their addresses which you will find on the last page.
