National Water Security Indicator/ Governance Index. -----
For each country, the assessment of water security in each key dimension indicates sectors
where the allocation of resources for capacity building and focused investments could accelerate
the movement toward a secure water future. The indexes also...
indicate where further
effort and investments are required to achieve the vision of a water-secure society that will
support inclusive social and economic development. In AWDO 2007, the importance of good
governance in determining the extent of water security was raised. Combining assessments of
national water security with World Bank statistics on governance shows that, with some exceptions,
the better the governance assessment the higher the water security assessment (Figure 4).
The AWDO water security framework provides the essential foundation for leaders to
kick-start transformational changes in management of the water sector. These changes will be
essential to drive improvement in how the region’s industrial, agricultural, and household users
think about and use the precious resource, water. Without clear and committed leadership to
guide these changes the full potential to increase water security for all of Asia and the Pacific’s
multiplicity of water users may be lost. Where leaders make the choice to commit to action,
the analysis made possible by AWDO 2013 will provide the means to measure the impacts of those choices. What is clear is that the progress made so far in the individual water use sectors is no guarantee for a water-secure future for many of the people and economies in Asia and the Pacific. Weaknesses in one key dimension can threaten the progress made in another. AWDO will help in determining how to keep the balance between water uses and assess potential tradeoffs between competing demands.
