Final Consultation Workshop for Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) 2016

The JWF attended the Final Consultation Workshop for Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) 2016, held on November 7th and 8th at the Asian Development Bank. At the workshop, each writer updated analytical methods and data for five key dimensions of water security (1. household water security; 2. economic water security; 3. urban water security, 4. environmental water security; 5. resilience against water-related disasters), based on AWDO 2013 and the results of discussions at the Interim Review Meeting for Asian Water Development Outlook 2016, held in August, 2015. In addition, each participant reported on the results of analysis of the current status and future outlook of water security in major nations as well as the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. Afterwards, all participants made comments on each report and discussed the major messages of AWDO 2016 in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and governance issues in the Asia-Pacific region.

The AWDO 2016 report will be released at World Water Week in Stockholm in August, 2016.
