Every drop counts: Learning from good practices in eight Asian cities
In keeping with the mission to address challenges in the provision of safe and reliable water and sanitation services, the Institute of Water Policy and the Asian Development Bank launched Every Drop Counts: Learning from Good Practices in Eight Asian Cities, featuring eight case studies that highlight good water policies and sustainable water management. The studies explore successful water management practices in urban centers of Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, China and Singapore.
Some of the challenges identified in the report include, among others, inadequate coverage of the urban population, rapid urbanization, interrupted supplies, high non-revenue water, poor quality of water and lack of asset management.
