Authors: Karakannas, H.
Issue Date: 1988
Publisher: © H. Karakannas
Abstract: The purpose of this Thesis for Master of Philosophy of Loughborough University of Technology, is to illustrate objectively and realistically the environmental conditions relative to the Water Resources of Cyprus, a developing British Colony, in 1936 and thereafter the evolution of water development until 1980. At that time Cyprus was suffering from poverty, water borne diseases and ill health, and lack of safe domestic water supplies. This Thesis will confirm how the British Colonial Water Engineer, and Geologist helped by other scientists, worked to develop the island's Water Resources to overcome poverty, free the peasant from disease and thus improve his health and raise the standard of living of the Cypriots and in general, how the local people responded and contributed willingly to the success of all the Water Development Programmes implemented during the period 1936–1980.
Description: A Master's Thesis. Submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of Master of Philosophy at Loughborough University.
