This paper modifies and uses an advanced computable general equilibrium model coupled with biophysical data on land and water resources by agro-ecological zone at the river basin level to examine the economy-wide consequences of improvements in water use efficiency (WUE) in irrigation in South Asia. This is the first time the benefits of such...

Both hydropower dams and global warming pose threats to freshwater fish diversity. While the extent of global warming may be reduced by a shift towards energy generation by large dams in order to reduce fossil-fuel use, such dams profoundly modify riverine habitats. Furthermore, the threats posed by dams and global warming will interact: for...

In a poorly developed, water-rich country such as Lao PDR, most attention has historically been given to surface water development issues with limited consideration to groundwater. However, even with such relative abundance, spatial or temporal shortfalls and occasional droughts are faced, and groundwater is being increasingly relied upon to...
