Abstract:The region of Siliana is a typical example of the services provided by small centres for regional development, and an indication that rural development is actually blocked if they are lacking. By the law of June 1974, Siliana became the centre of a governorate, in order to promote the seven delegations into which the 575,825 hectares of the governorate are divided. Siliana is one of the least favoured regions of Tunisia, with a dispersed population only 17 percent of which is urbanized. The supply of drinking water to eleven localities in the different delegations is one of the most urgent projects for improving living conditions. Its success is measured by describing the present system of distribution of drinking water and the general conditions of living, and evaluating the direct and indirect results of the project. Ref.
