About The Water Agency

It is our vision for water to be a valued and shared force of life for all people in Asia Pacific. It is our vision for water to be a valued and shared force of life for all people in Asia Pacific.

According to the Asian Water Development Outlook (2016), up to 3.4 billion people could be living under water-stress across the Asia Pacific region by 2050, suffering from lack of clean drinking water, threatened by floods, at risk from poor sewerage or threatened by water pollution. The report makes a strong case for strengthening of partnerships, inclusive approaches, using more knowledge-based solutions and applying the latest technologies.

The Water Agency's vision and mission are closely connected to this challenge. It is our vision for water to be a valued and shared force of life for all people in Asia Pacific. To achieve this, we work every day to develop Water Hubs that connect, engage and inspire people and organisations to collaborate, share knowledge and create solutions that address the region's most pressing water issues.
