Within the framework of a VLIR-ABOS Inter-University initiative in supporting developing countries '94 a Hydraulic Laboratory was etablished from 1986 till 1990 at the 'Universidad Mayor de San Simon' at Cochabamba, Bolivia. From 1990 till 1995 a support programme was active and currently an attempt is being made to transfer the Inter-university programme in water resources engineering (IUPWARE) '94 to the U.M.S.S. This project is supported by the W.H.O. and UNESCO. The philosophy behind the project and the reason that have contributed to its success are briefly developed in this extended abstract.
