Water and power resources of West Pakistan : a study in sector planning (Vol. 2) (Inglês)

The focal points of this study are the Indus River, which runs the length of West Pakistan, several of its tributaries, and a huge natural underground reservoir. In developing a realistic investment program for water and power, the Bank's study group had to consider a host of interrelated factors: the objective of maximizing economic returns, the competition for scarce resources, all aspects of agricultural production, alternative sources of water for irrigation, the country's projected electricity requirements, and the coordination of decisions regarding power generation and agriculture. Volume 1 of this report is a condensed, integrated version of the analysis and results of the entire study, including an evaluation of the huge Tarbela project, the problems of agricultural development, the interaction of agriculture with other sectors of the economy, the demand for power and means of meeting the demand, and areas of critical concern, such as the need for electrical interconnection within West Pakistan. Volume II gives a detailed discussion of irrigation and agriculture, including the use of improved seeds, fertilizers, new cropping patterns, and modern techniques of husbandry, in addition to the development of water resources. Volume III contains papers on the background and methodology of the study, particularly the macroeconomic framework, a linear program of irrigated agriculture in the Indus Basin, and a computer simulation of the power system.
