About the product

The purpose of this special report is both to inform and advise. It assesses the current and likely future groundwater quality problems, both natural and anthropogenic, in the region and identifies the principal threats to the security of the valuable resource. It provides an overview of the major groundwater concerns of the Asia/Pacific region. It is hoped that this valuable report will promote the development of concrete actions for the protection and restoration of critical groundwater reserves in the region as well as drawing increased attention to the value and vulnerability of the resources.
