Call for Papers: Water Challenges and Solution Opportunities in South Asia, a Rapidly Developing Region of the World

South Asia is one of the most populated regions of the world with a population of nearly two billion people (nearly a quarter of the world’s population) located within 5.1 million square kilometers of land. This creates challenging circumstances for freshwater management and supply for the region.

South Asia experiences a wide diversity of urban and natural water stressors.  There are a diversity of climates across South Asia, though much of the region is heavily dependent on monsoon rainfall, which may be dramatically impacted by climate change.  Despite rapid economic growth in South Asia, relatively sparse information is available on the water situation and technology/policy solutions.

This Special Issue from ACS ES&T Water will provide a high-level overview of the water issues facing South Asia, as well as technological and policy examples of efforts to overcome the regional challenges. Moreover, the Special Issue will set the groundwork for future advancements to maintain water sustainability in this rapidly developing region.
