WaterWealth? Investing in Basin Management in Asia and the Pacific
Pangare, Ganesh; Das, Binayak; Arriens, Wouter Lincklaen; Makin, Ian | March 2013
Today, the countries of Asia and the Pacific face some hard development choices. Rising investment and consumption are transforming landscapes and lifestyles across the region. Can the current boom be sustained? The authors of this book believe it can, but only if we manage one of the main pillars of this growth - water. Asia is in the grip of a water crisis that could set back its robust growth if left unresolved. By 2030, the region is projected to have a gap of up to 40% between the demand for and supply of water. How can countries manage the interlinked challenges of water, energy and food security? What are some of the proven tools and measures they can use to achieve this goal?
