In October 1977, a Task Force consisting of well-known international experts met at International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis, Laxenburg, Austria, to discuss and review the status of large-scale water transfers in different parts of the world and to make recommendations about possible future directions of work (Golubev and Biswas, 1979). One of the major recommendations of this Task Force was to hold another meeting at an appropriate time to review environmental implications of current and proposed large-scale water transfer schemes. It was also suggested that critical reviews of development on the subject would be desirable.
