Asia is home to 4.4 billion people, or more than 60 percent of the world's population. However, Asia is facing serious water challenges in terms of both quality and quantity due to climate change, urbanisation and population growth, which can be found in South America as well. Water stakeholders all over the world will be met in this session to share their insights and experiences for resolving the water problems in Asia as well as to introduce Asia International Water Week (AIWW), a platform to promote cooperation among the nations.
