Interim Review Meeting for Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) 2016


The JWF participated in a meeting held at the ADB on August 13th and 14th. It focused on conducting an interim review of AWDO 2016. The Asia-Pacific Water Forum, for which JWF serves as secretariat, assisted in writing and publishing AWDO2007 and AWDO2013. In AWDO2016, we are planning to analyze and assess water security levels of each country and the region as a whole, and compile comprehensive recommendations based on five key dimensions of water security identified in AWDO2013: household water security, economic water security, urban water security, environmental water security, and resilience to water-related disasters.

AWDO2016 is expected to be made public at World Water Week in Stockholm in August, 2016.
