One of the CPWF's research approaches was to examine in detail the issues of development, poverty and water productivity in 10 river basins worldwide in the Basin Focal Projects. This Special Issue has papers from nine of these basins: the Andes system of basins in South America; the Limpopo, the Niger, the Nile and the Volta in Africa; the Karkheh in Iran; and the Ganges, the Indus, the Mekong and the Yellow in Asia. A second Special Issue of the same journal looks at cross-basin analyses.
