About this book

Population growth, urbanisation and economic growth in general, all exert pressure on water resources through increased demand and pollution. Water is essential for life and its supply for safe drinking water, food, health and the environment needs to be secured. This 57 page summary with CD-ROM provides the status of water resources across the continents of Africa and Asia for major rivers, lakes and groundwater basins. The joint Africa-Asia study is intended for managers, planners and other key decision-makers in water resources management and governments.
