Asia's Next Challenge: Securing the Region's Water Future

The insatiable demand for water will most likely lead to new conflicts throughout the 21st century. The Asia Society's Task Force issued this 59-page report in April 2009 which looks into how this region of the world will grapple with the challenges of maintaining and building sustained access to a safe, stable water supply. The report begins with a discussion of the impending problem and its ramifications, which may include "impaired food production, the loss of livelihood security, large scale migration within and across borders, and increased economic and geopolitical tensions and instabilities." The report is divided into ten short chapters, and it also includes a section on "Institutional Responses to Water Security" and several appendices detailing international freshwater-related agreements in Asia.
