Computers: Water Resources Models in Latin Americaby Medardo Molina, UN Economic Commission for Latin, America, Santiago, Chile,
Abstract: Ninety-six national institutions dealing with planning, irrigation, water supply, and hydropower generation in twenty-six Latin American and Caribbean countries were surveyed between February and April, 1984, to assess their status in computer and modeling technologies. The main conclusion of the survey is that the Latin American and Caribbean national authorities in water resources are aware that microcomputers and modeling can help them improve their jobs. But training and access to the most recent hardware and software sources is urgently needed to accomplish that task.
