Water for All
In the Spotlight
A new initiative in the Lao People's Democratic Republic is bringing clean water and modern toilets to rural communities.
An ADB-supported project worked with private companies to provide clean water to cities in the People's Republic of China.
India is undertaking an ambitious initiative to upgrade its sanitation system nationwide, attempting to give every house and school access to a modern toilet by 2019. Countries around Asia are grappling with the same issue.
Water is one of our most precious resources, but it is threatened by growth, misuse, and pollution. In Asia and the Pacific, many countries are in a water crisis and the demand for water is huge and growing.
"Water for All" is ADB's vision and policy for Asia and the Pacific. ADB's Water Financing Program works to increase investments and support reforms in cities, rural communities, and river basins.
