About the product

Water scarcity heightens the potential for conflicts among riparian countries in Asia and increases their vulnerability. A regional water resource cooperation mechanism would enhance collaboration and increase resilience so that water becomes an instrument for cooperation and unity rather than conflict. This publication provides an insightful assessment of the hydropolitical atmosphere in Asia and offers lessons to enhance future cooperation mechanisms.
