The document reports on a workshop which was convened to identify factors leading to program successes and failures in international civil engineering. Emphasized are public participation, economic measures, public health, environmentalism, and appropriate technology. The workshop was organized around two sessions. The first session was devoted generally to case studies presented by practicing engineers. The case studies included transportation, impoundment, irrigation, water supply, and waste disposal. The second session concentrated on discussions of socioeconomic and environmental considerations and their impact on civil engineering.
