Financing Asian Irrigation: Choices Before Us
Asian Development Bank | May 2017
Water resources are becoming increasingly scarce in the Asia and Paciﬁc region. By 2050, agriculture will need to produce 100% more food in developing countries. Climate change and rapid population growth will place new pressures on already scarce water resources. Improved irrigation productivity—more crop per drop—and greater ﬁnancial sustainability are critical. Estimates for the Asian region place a $12.31 billion annual investment required for irrigation between 2005 and 2030.
