Abstract : The project focuses on the question of the determination and evaluation of developmental benefits of water resource investments. The study recognizes that in addition to producing services whose value to users would be benefits of an investment project, that the project itself might produce additional changes in the economy of the region in which it was located. In other words, in addition to the value of water resource services to water service users (primary benefits) it is recognized that water resource investments might cause an enhancement of a region's economy by way of inducing the expansion or formation of economic activities in that area.
