In the face of growing water scarcity, most countries of the world are taking steps to use their water resources in a more sustainable way. The water crisis ranges from concerns of drinking water availability and/or quality, the degradation or contamination of freshwater resources, and the allocation of water resources to different users. To meet the challenge, many countries are undergoing systemic changes to the use of water resources and the provision of water services.
Naren Prasad is coordinating the UNRISD project Social Policy, Regulation and Private Sector Involvement in Water Supply. To find out more about this project, please click here
