About this Textbook

This book explains how water, electricity/power, roads and other infrastructure services are linked together within the general basket of development and how to obtain the optimum use of resources. The emphasis, nowadays, is on multipurpose activities, optimum use of resources, environmental approach, minimum use of energy. This book tries to integrate all of these, by showing the links between the different components of infrastructure and trying to model them. A well articulated, socially attractive and desirable project may fail during the implementation or operation stage, not only from bad design, but also due to inadequate attention paid to the human aspects required for its operation.

This book is intended for graduates and practising professionals who are involved in the general development planning of their country/region. It enables better understanding, collaboration and communication with other professionals in relation to their own or different disciplines.


About the authors

After graduating in civil engineering, Dr. Proag obtained his Ph.D from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris. During his 15 years in the water sector, he has been involved in the preparation of feasibility studies, the design and supervision of pipelines and  other schemes relating to construction and repair of minor dams, or harnessing water sources either through run-of-river schemes or from boreholes and in the preparation of a Master Plan for Water Resources for Mauritius. He subsequently joined the University of Mauritius, where he has been lecturing, for more than 20 years, generally on civil engineering and management subjects, and infrastructure planning and management, where he has trained many people to consider infrastructure as a whole, together with a need for resilience towards extreme conditions.
