<Sourcebook of Alternative Technologies for Freshwater Augumentation
in Some Countries in Asia>

2. OBJECTIVES

The main objective of this project is to address the need of Asian planners for information appropriate to maximize and augment available freshwater resources using appropriate technologies. To achieve this objective, it is necessary to provide water resource managers with information on different technologies used within the Region to augment and maximize freshwater resources, and on specific experiences with these technologies from throughout the Region. The Asian Source Book forms part of the UNEP environmental technology transfer initiative that will ultimately result in the preparation of a Global Source Book on Alternative Technologies for Freshwater Augmentation. Other regional source books are being compiled for Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, East and Central Europe, West Asia, and Small Island Developing States. These regional books provide a basic source of information for, and form the basis for international cooperation between, developing countries of the world.
