Region Profile: Climate, Geography, Socio-Economic Context

This region supports some 60% of the world’s population with only 36% of the world’s water resources. Growing population, rapid urbanization and economic development put heavy pressure on freshwater resources and further accentuate the disparities in their natural distribution. With major transboundary rivers characterizing much of Asia, regional cooperation among riparian countries surfaces as an important issue, and benefit-sharing is a paramount concern – one that is also highlighted in the third edition of the World Water Development Report, which this volume accompanies.
