DescriptionThe nature of the increased needs and demands for water relate to water quantity and quality, bringing in the dimensions of timing and location of water flows. Some key past international activities related to water and watershed policy are reviewed. The common threads that are shaping likely future responses relate to technical vs. institutional means of addressing problems, participatory stakeholder management, developing integrated solutions, and decentralization and privatization of management. Two major response areas are reviewed, namely, that of increasing efficiency in use to reduce per capita consumption and that of developing improved supplies of water through improved management.
