The WEPA Outlook is the flagship publication of WEPA which includes basic information on the water environment and its management in each WEPA partner country. The Outlook is in principle published every three year in the occasion of World Water Forum.

This report is the third edition of the series, and consists of two main chapters: Chapter 1 - “Outlook on Water Environmental Management in WEPA Countries” and Chapter 2 - “Country Profiles of Water Environmental Management in WEPA Countries”. The first chapter presents the results of analysis on institutional frameworks for water environmental management in WEPA countries. The second chapter provides updated country profiles on water environmental management in the WEPA countries. It also gives WEPA’s message introducing the existing challenges and our commitment for sustainable water environmental management made through discussions held at WEPA annual meetings.

WEPA Outlook 2015 is being published for the 7th World Water Forum organised in April 2015 in Daegu and Gyeongbuk, Republic of Korea. It is our sincere wish that this report serves as a good reference for those who are involved in issues in Asia and other regions of the world, and we also hope that it will contribute to sustainable water environmental management in Asian countries.
