The water resources management practices in most of the countries in southeast Asia have been generally on a sectoral level without con­ sideration of any intersectoral interference and : Ashim Das Gupta. Overexploitation of groundwater. Groundwater overexploitation occurred in many areas of Asia, such as Gujarat, India, North China plain and some area of related to declination of ground-water levels, reduction of well outputs, and seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers, land surface subsidence and movement of mineralized or polluted waters into the aquifer. He researches water resources management, climate change impact assessment, and groundwater assessment and management. Shrestha has published more than papers in peer-reviewed journals and presented more than 60 conference papers. He is the co-author of “Groundwater Environment in Asian Cities: Concepts, Methods and Case Studies” (Elsevier). As a “Regional Hub for Groundwater Management in the Asia Pacific Region”, IGES finds this book as a very much useful reference for knowledge hub partners, groundwater managers, academic institutions, research scholars, and international organizations working in the areas of groundwater in Asia and beyond (Dr. Hideyuki Mori, IGES).

Water resources are natural resources of water that are potentially useful. Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities. All living things require water to grow and reproduce. 97% of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. Groundwater is widely acknowledged to be an important source of drinking water in low-income regions, and it, therefore, plays a critical role in the realization of the human right to water. However, the proportion of households using groundwater compared with other sources is rarely quantified, with national and global datasets more focused on facilities—rather than resources— by: 7.   Water Resources Management (WRM) is the process of planning, developing, and managing water resources, in terms of both water quantity and quality, across all water uses. It includes the institutions, infrastructure, incentives, and information systems that .

  The chapter on the Middle East-North Africa region expresses pessimism regarding moving to sustainable groundwater governance and management due to ineffective state-level governance and limited Cited by: 3.   Groundwater is a valuable resource both in the United States and throughout the world. Groundwater depletion, a term often defined as long-term water-level declines caused by sustained groundwater pumping, is a key issue associated with groundwater use. Many areas of the United States are experiencing groundwater depletion. The Project pursues a coherent research agenda on groundwater (GW) development and management in Sun-Saharan Africa (SSA) that incorporates ecosystem based approach (through development of ecosystem focused thresholds of GW use and Ecosystem-focused GW governance models). It applies current best-available understanding from around the globe, while catering for the particular .   The present paper reviews the literature on urban water demand management and compares practices in South-East Asia. Existing literature is mostly from developed economies and is concerned mainly with elasticity studies, which are not relevant to developing countries because their main problem is non-revenue water. Cities in South-East Asia employ both price and non-price Cited by:
