The 2nd Asia-Pacific Water Summit, organized by the Asia-Pacific Water Forum (APWF), gathered heads of state and government from Asia and the Pacific, water-related ministers, local government, and leaders from the private sector, civil society, including students and youth to step up their leadership and commitment to water security and water-related disaster challenges in the region.

To inform the leaders ahead of the summit, ADB and APWF launched the Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) 2013 on 13 March 2013. AWDO 2013 provides the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of water security on a country by country basis in the region. It examines five key dimensions of water security including household, economic, urban, environmental, and resilience to water-related disaster. The study found that more than 75% of the countries in Asia and the Pacific are experiencing a serious lack of water security, with many of them facing an imminent water crisis unless immediate steps are taken to improve management of water resources. This video was produced for the Summit by the APWF with support from ADB.
