Access to a stable and safe water supply eludes many Asian countries. As communities struggle to extract limited water resources, major health issues and security concerns across and within national borders are raised. A reduced water supply can have far-reaching consequences, including mass migration, loss of livelihood, compromised food production and geo-political tensions in already vulnerable areas. Our panelists, representing diverse sectors and viewpoints, will discuss the current status of water security in the region and recommend strategies to ensure fair and sufficient access to water for all.
