Chellaney shows how today's economic growth could lead to tomorrow's "water wars". This is a vital book for anybody interested in diplomacy and conflict in the twenty-first century' - Stanley A. Weiss founding chairman Business Executives for National Security Washington DC The battles of yesterday were fought over land; those of today are over energy. But the battles of tomorrow may be over water. Nowhere is that danger greater than in water-distressed Asia. Water stress is set to become Asia's defining crisis of the twenty-first century creating obstacles to continued rapid economic growth stoking interstate tensions over shared resources exacerbating long-time territorial disputes and imposing further hardships on the poor. Asia is home to many of the world's great rivers and lakes but its huge population and exploding economic and agricultural demand for water make it the most water-scarce continent on a per capita basis. Many of Asia's water sources cross national boundaries and as less and less water is available international tensions will rise. The potential for conflict is further underscored by China's unrivalled global status as the source of transboundary river flows to the largest number of countries as it declines to enter into water-sharing or cooperative treaties with these states even as it taps the resources of international rivers. Water: Asia's New Battleground is a pioneering study of Asia's murky water politics and the relationships between freshwater peace and security. Brahma Chellaney paints a larger picture of water across Asia highlights the security implications of resource-linked territorial disputes and proposes real strategies to avoid conflict and more equitably share Asia's water resources. 9789350291610
