ADB 1997-18: Asia's Water Crisis: The Struggle Within Each Drop

More than one billion people in the developing world lack access to safe drinking water, and more than 2.5 billion live without sanitation. In the countryside, farmers use two thirds of their water to irrigate their fields. In Asia's teeming megacities, water needs of growing urban populations compete with expanding industries and agriculture. Over the next 15 years, one billion more people will have to share Asia's scarce water supplies. The Struggle Within Each Drop profiles Sri Lanka, Philippines, and People's Republic of China, and looks towards solutions to Asia's growing water crisis.
