There is an increasing annual demand for water drawn from Asia's international rivers for domestic, agricultural, industrial, and environment purposes. As a result, nations sharing river systems, lakes and aquifers are vulnerable to tensions and conflicts, which in many are intensified by climate variation and climate change. Therefore monitoring, predicting and pre-empting transboundary water conflicts will become central issues for future human and environmental security.
This report focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing Asia: a continent with intensively utilized groundwater and surface water resources. It presents a comprehensive assessment including such issues as the scale of conflict and cooperation along the Jordan River Basin, the West Bank, Mekong and Salween rivers, the Krishna-Godavari and Cauvery Water disputes.
