The purpose of this study was to investigate the socioeconomic aspects of selected villages involved in a water surface development scheme, during the early stages of the program. The program involved, known as the Surface Water Development Unit (SWDU), arose out of an ECA/VAB feasibility study undertaken in 1971, on the siting and costs of water development in drought- stricken areas of Ethiopia. A further study was undertaken in 1974 in the Gurage sub-district by a geophysicist, a hydrologist and an ECA/VAB representative.
