Hide / Show Abstract

Many of the countries in Asia and the Pacific have a surplus of renewable water resources, although the amount of water available per person has decreased since 1997 in nearly every country of the region. This decrease is principally the result of population increases and economic development, resulting in more people, each of them using more of the finite water resources available.
