IWMI has a strong presence across the continent, conducting research from the offices listed below to help build a new future for water management. Key challenges are increased incidence of water-related disasters together with unsustainable and competing uses for water, which threaten to undermine food production and rural employment, while also fueling conflict.
In search of solutions, IWMI researchers better enable communities and whole countries to tap the enormous potential for improving water management within the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We pursue this aim through three strategic programs:
The continent presents a mosaic of water management conditions, requiring approaches that are tailored to differing needs and opportunities in South, Southeast and Central Asia. IWMI, with its varied expertise and decades of experience, is exceedingly well prepared to respond.
Our research contributes to key international ininitiatives that are important for Asia, such as the Intergovernmental Sciency-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), Asia-Pacific Water Forum (APWF), Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and Ramsar Convention on wetlands.
